Bridget is an original member of the Association for Body Mapping Education’s Board of Directors and currently serves the organization as co-chair of the Image Committee, as a member of the Training Committee and Sponsoring Teacher, and most recently was hired to serve as their Executive Director.
Bridget has taught Body Mapping courses and workshops in a variety of settings across the United States as well as online to international audiences.
