Hi, I’m Bridget, spelled the Irish way. I’m a writer living in Denver, Colorado with my fiancé. I’m great at memorizing birthdays and making up weird words. Not a bad dancer either. (I’ve been to all 48 continental states in the U.S.)
Leveraging years of writing experience in both print and online publications, offering a unique lens into the world of travel, food, environmental issues, politics, and local business. I am looking to harness my abilities in a writing role(s) to make a positive difference.
