Meet Bridget

  • Special Education Certification

Hello! My name is Bridget and I am originally from a suburb just outside of Boston, MA. I have a B.A. in Writing and Psychology from NYU and an Ed.M. in Education Policy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. After I finished my undergraduate degree I moved to Austin, Texas and worked as a home- and community-based ABA therapist and then as a special education teacher. I have worked with all age groups from early childhood to young adult and with youth with a wide range of physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities. I completed my graduate degree in May and am now working with a child advocacy nonprofit. I am hoping to pick up some odd babysitting or tutoring jobs in the evenings or on weekends. Please message me if it seems like it could be a good fit!

Bridget is such a sweetheart! She's kind and trust-worthy, she's always on time, and my little boy adores her! We love her.

Bridget has my highest recommendation. She has taken care of my two year old, and I've got her lined up for a couple more times. Really wish I could use her more. She's pretty available right now as she is a newcomer to Austin and looking for full time work. Professional and precious!
