Bridget fell in love with Evanston as a student at Northwestern University. After graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in Communications, she lived in Chicago for several years as a young professional. In 2008, she and her husband Derek were thrilled to return to their favorite community to raise 3 children. On the North Shore to stay, Bridget and Derek recently completed the renovation of their historic home in northwest Evanston.
