She started young at the age of 14 helping her father dip strawberries into chocolate and creating appetizers for his company retreats, the joy of watching her contributions create memories for those in her circle started a life long love of food and Event planning.
She started her career young as an entrepreneur at the age of 18. She took her company from a small hair cart in a mall to several larger store fronts in multiple states. After her children were born Brigette decided she would like to work from home and spend as much time with her children as possible.

Her most cherished memories at the school not only include dreaming these spectacular galas but building strong programs with amazing parent volunteers and teachers.
