Staff Spotlight – Lisa


As part of our core values, we believe in family here at River Ridge. This week and throughout the rest of the year, we will be featuring not only important stories and upcoming events, but we will be taking a look inside what makes River Ridge function that way it does. Of course we couldn’t have a restaurant and bar without the people who truly are the backbone of the business. Therefore, this week we are featuring our staff member Lisa Speer.

I met Lisa my first day at River Ridge. Her personality and funny sense of humor immediately caught my attention. I could tell right away that she had a love for River Ridge. Lisa is not only a server and bartender at River Ridge, she brings personality and a sense of community to the restaurant. Lisa has lived in the Yakima Valley her entire life. She loves the area and enjoys the people in this community.

As a member of the River Ridge family for three years now, Lisa has many reasons why she enjoys what she does and what she is looking forward to this season. “I love the customers, support from Dean and everyone I work with, and the overall feel of family and community,” Lisa said, “I am looking forward to all the fundraising events coming up and showing the support that River Ridge has into the community.”  Lisa not only has a love for her job, but her family and community as well. Including her dog Hurley shown in the picture above.

Here at River Ridge, we are happy to have a wonderful and passionate person like Lisa to reflect to the community what River Ridge represents.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to keep updated on our Facebook.
