Bridget graduated from Harvard University and has had previous lives as a middle school teacher, wilderness guide, outdoor education administrator, yoga instructor, energy bar maker, music festival coordinator, Spanish teacher, and graphic designer. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at Northern Arizona Universitywhile also working as an editor and composition instructor. While Bridget currently pays rent in Flagstaff, AZ, she considers herself to be a semi-migratory being in love with far too many ecosystems to settle in just one. She is working on a book about the process of creating community and a sense of home while living a nomadic life.
Much of Bridget's writing focuses on themes that are close to her heart: relationships between people and their surroundings, sustainable living, explorations of geography and culture, the challenges of forging interpersonal connections in an increasingly isolated world, and the power of music and art. Through her writing, she endeavors to capture specific personal experiences that portray the commonalities of our wild, aggravating, uncertain, and beautiful collective human journey.
She was recently the recipient of a Voices in the Wilderness artist's residency to travel with and write about migratory birds and bird biologists in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and she remains committed to her biweekly blog, exploraspective, about her travels and explorations.
