Bridgette is a full-time English Education Student. She transferred in the fall of 2013 from Calhoun Community College, where she was a member of the Sigma Kappa Delta (SKD) English Honor Society and Phi Theta Kappa. Bridgette has had two short stories and a poem published in Calhoun’s literary magazine Muse. She won second place in the SKD National Poetry Competition, and as a result her poem was also published in the 2013 Hedera Helix, SKD’s National Literary Magazine. She loves to write both for fun and for academic purposes. She hopes to publish a collection of short stories at some point in the future. In the meantime, she will finish her degree and find a teaching job in a local high school before starting on her master’s. She is the assistant editor of the Athens State Newspaper, The Athenian, and is thrilled to be working in the writing center.

Bridgette lives in Elkmont with her husband and two boys.
