Bridgette is a sustainability consultant who helps individuals and businesses to reduce their environmental impact. She graduated in June 2007 from Stanford University with her masters in Civil and Environmental Engineering in their Atmosphere and Energy Program.

During the winter her home is covered in 12 feet of snow and in the summer she walks directly from her house to hiking trails. She has a black lab/border collie mix named Cooper and is married to the man of her dreams, who also happens to be a firefighter/paramedic.

Bridgette is the Architecture Editor on Inhabitat and a contributing writer for Inhabitots.com and Ecouterre.com.
