Born in Lafayette, Indiana, and raised in Speedway, a suburb just outside of Indianapolis, Jennifer Bresnahan started on a much different path from where she is today. After graduating high school in North Carolina, she attended College of Charleston to study Sports Medicine. With experience as a lifeguard and swim coach, she looked for jobs in the Charleston area and realized pool jobs were not in high demand near the beach. Instead, she took notice of Charlestonâ€™s thriving restaurant scene and took a hostess job at A.W. Shuckâ€™s. And so her restaurant journey began.
Bresnahan continued to work in restaurants throughout college. By the time she started the application process for medical school, she had fallen in love with the restaurant industry and reevaluated her goals. She set out to broaden her experience, working in both casual and fine dining restaurants as a server, and bartending at a busy college bar and a luxury hotel bar. From there, she worked as a server at Hankâ€™s Seafood for several years before joining the Neighborhood Dining Group family as a server at Husk.
In the spring of 2014, Bresnahan was promoted to General Manager of Husk Charleston. Jennifer is honored to be a part of the Husk and NDG team, as well as a part of Charlestonâ€™s incredible restaurant landscape. When not at Husk, Jennifer loves enjoying a good book on the beach, gardening and planning her next trip â€“ usually centered around where she wants to eat.
