A Dietrich, Idaho native, Bridgett has been in the field of dentistry for several years and counting. She began by working as a receptionist and scheduler in a dental office.

At home, Bridgett loves being with her husband on their acreage outside of town. Together, they like gardening, spending time with their horses, and geocaching/logging road adventures with their German Shepard. They also enjoy going on date nights to listen to music, get food from top-notch food trucks, and enjoy beautiful vineyards in the area.
