A seasoned legal recruiter, Bridget has placed partners, groups, and general counsel across a wide range of practices in all the major U.S. markets as well as in Europe and the UK. Prior to moving into recruiting, Bridget practiced law for 14 years at Brown & Wood (now Sidley Austin), McKenna & Co. (now CMS) and Crosby Heafey Roach & May (now Reed Smith).

Bridget is passionate about language, linguistics, and literature. She speaks Spanish fluently and Portuguese conversationally, and she dabbles in many other languages. She seeks out and cultivates friendships with people from all walks of life and from all corners of the globe. Bridget believes in using her voice to speak for the vulnerable, and to that end, she works with a number of organizations in her community that provide support to indigent seniors. Above all else, she cherishes time spent with her beloved family and friends and with her BFF Peggy-O, a Lab mix rescue who is (usually) a very good girl.
