Bridget grew up in the hilly city of Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Always curious and adventurous, she did a myriad of unusual activities such as primitive archery, shooting trap and skeet, and playing the trumpet. Bridget discovered her love for the alpine environment in the White Mountains and New Zealand while studying at Tufts University.
Upon graduation, Bridget came to Southwest Montana for her Field School for Geology and never left. That same summer, she roped up with friends and got to climb the Grand Teton for the first time. She's been a bit obssessed with climbing and alpinism ever since. Bozeman, Montana is where Bridget calls home, and the Greater Yellowstone is her Alma Mater as a rock, ice, and alpine climber. She's worked as a geologist on oil rigs in North Dakota and Wyoming, as a shooting instructor for various summer camps, and as a GIS Analyst before coming to RMI. She also enjoys trail running with her dog, Wilson, and volunteering with the Gallatin County SAR.
