In 2013, she was featured in an article in the Ebony Magazine; The Spiritual life, behind bars, part 2. Bridget is a faith walking, mountain moving, dynamic speaker who is always ready to walk the extra mile to help others. She has been spiritually equipping and encouraging inmates from a prison pulpit and echoing her voice from beyond the prison walls to reach those who are outside.

She also successfully completed Re-Entry Rocks Phase II – Fellowship program (Business Incubator).
