Bridget joined the FCIP team in January 2019, but has been a Loyola staff member since 2007. Bridget received her BA in Sociology and Women’s Studies from Boston College and MA in Clinical Social Work from the University of Chicago. She is currently working on her dissertation to complete her PhD in Social Work here at Loyola University Chicago. Bridget’s commitment to and passion for Jesuit education began as a student at BC, grew as a teacher at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School on Chicago’s southwest side, and has been the guiding force in her work with students and colleagues since then.

Bridget supports FCIP in our overall efforts to promote excellence in teaching at Loyola, and to support faculty, staff and graduate students as they incorporate Ignatian Pedagogy in their work in and out of the classroom. As an instructor in Loyola’s School of Social Work, Bridget employs the principles and tactics of Ignatian Pedagogy to challenge and support her students, and enrich their educational experience. Away from the office and classroom, Bridget lives in Edgewater with her family and is a loyal Loyola sports fan. Go Ramblers!
