Bridgette loved playing baseball. She was the first girl in little league to make the All-Star Team. Her success in sports is driven by her fiercely competitive nature and ability to self-teach. Bridgette is a loving mom and stepmom, blessed with a son and two "bonus" daughters. Bridgette’s husband is a retired firefighter, a loving father and one of her biggest inspirations. “People are drawn to him, because he is real, and because he makes each individual feel as if they are the most important person in that moment.” Bridgette’s dad was an avid reader. She got her love for reading and storytelling from him. One of her favorite rituals with her son was to make up nightly stories for bedtime, even when she traveled for business.
