A lifelong journalist, Bridgette is a freelance writer who covers the arts--performing and visual, culture, hotels, spas and travel. I love telling people's stories, especially those people who are changing the world for the better. I actively seek to diversify my coverage, to help amplify voices that aren't always being heard. I have been published in regional and national newspapers, magazines and other publications both print and electronic. I cover communities throughout Michigan plus Los Angeles, Tucson, Phoenix and Houston.
