Brittany Ross

Brittany Ross
Our Star Student Brittany Ross came into Riverside Bartending School and knocked out our 100 Hour Program with authority. Brittany had no experience in this industry and still managed to finish our course in less than two weeks. During her time here, she definitely shined. From her speed behind the bar, to her cleanliness, and her bubbly personality she is sure to do great things in this industry. Brittany moved to Florida days after completing our 100 Hour Course and she was able to find work as a Bartender within a week of her move. Congrats to another successful Student. Great Job!
