Strategic Grantmaking Coordinator
Bridgitte works with the Strategic Programs team by providing grantmaking support – be it at the identification, proposal, evaluation, or reporting stage.
Prior to joining Tides Canada, Bridgitte worked across the public sector, including in international trade with the BC government and global educational exchange with the University of British Columbia. She holds a B.A. in International Relations from the University of British Columbia, where she focused her research on environmental conflicts and grassroots social movements. Bridgitte has previously led various community engagement organizations and she currently sits on the Board of Directors for a small nonprofit dedicated to youth leadership.
Bridgitte finds her energy through her belief that ‘global-citizenship’ must start locally. Born and raised on the West Coast, Bridgitte enjoys travel, being at the beach, and photography. She also enjoys practicing her Spanish skills…slowly, but surely!
