Senior Vice President, @bridgetliberty

Bridget is a Senior Vice President at 270 Strategies, specializing in technological and data advancements that connect online and offline programs. One of the very first strategists to join the 270 team, Bridget has played a critical role in shaping the company’s culture and approach. During her tenure at the firm, she has help lead our largest staff teams, and her experience includes developing engagement and communication strategies for some of 270’s most high-profile international and domestic clients, including Planned Parenthood, United Way and the Chicago Cubs. 

Prior to working at 270, Bridget was a project manager on the digital organizing team for the 2012 Obama campaign in Chicago. There, Bridget helped architect the technology that allowed volunteers to get involved and have an impact from their homes — including the call tool, events module, and story bank. She also designed and managed the programs that launched these tools to volunteers around the country.

Bridget got her start in politics in 2008 as a Field Organizer on the Obama campaign in Sarasota County, Florida. While working on the web team for Villanova University's Campus Ministry office shortly thereafter, she witnessed the impact of adding digital tactics to organizing strategy and became interested in using tech and digital tools to scale the way we engage communities.

Bridget earned a B.A. in Political Science from Villanova University, where she also studied Philosophy and Arab and Islamic studies and served as Student Body President — elected at the top of the University’s first-ever female ticket.

Bridget is a global improv champion and is currently based in New York City. Most days, you can find her at the 92nd Street Y or running the trails in Prospect Park.
