Bridget's passion for community involvement and sustainability can be traced directly back to her family’s pioneer roots; ranching and organic farming in the foothills southwest of Turner Valley. Bridget is a fifth-generation Albertan, and the third generation to live on the family farm where she currently resides with her two young sons, ages 7 and 11. She graduated from Oilfields High School in Black Diamond in 1999, before attending the University of Calgary, where she studied economics, English and philosophy. For the past five years, she has been working in the public service in a local municipal office, specializing in legislative services and communications.
Bridget first became engaged in the political process in high school, and by 2002 was advocating for major political change at the federal level. She has spent the past 17 years working hard to promote political awareness and speaking up through her writing and activism to protect people and the environment from exploitation and pollution. She advocates for a just society where everyone’s basic needs are met, including having access to clean air and water, nutritious food, affordable housing, comprehensive healthcare and a good education.
