ABOUT

Hi I’m Bridget, spelled the Irish way. I’m a multi-faceted writer living in Denver, Colorado. 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. Looking to harness my abilities in a writing role(s) where I can make a difference and elevate an organization’s growth and impact.
