Bridgette leads corporate strategy and engagement for WWF’s Freshwater and Food goals, bringing together her significant experience of global sustainability, operations, and supply chains, with a deep understanding of the private sector that spans multiple, diverse markets.

Previously, Bridgette provided valuable leadership as the Global Director of Sustainability for KFC. In this role, Bridgette headed all sustainability and CSR issues for the brand, internally within Yum! Brands and externally with various sustainability stakeholders. She created global sustainability policies on waste and packaging and led the brand sustainability strategy, CSR framework and initiatives globally such as: hunger, food donation, recycling, green building, animal welfare, sustainable sourcing, packaging, energy and waste.

Bridgette is passionate about environmental and social justice and joined WWF on a mission to make an impact in these areas across the public and private sectors. She spearheads several core partnerships for WWF across the agribusiness, food & beverage, and textiles industries in addition to being a leading voice on WWF’s diversity, equality, and inclusion.

In Bridgette’s spare time, she enjoys music, great food, and the arts

“I joined WWF at a time when I wanted to pivot professionally, to a role with purpose where my ideas on environmental and social impact for the private sector would not only be listened to, but where I could lead on making them a reality. I believe that if everyone lives by their own values individually, while leading and influencing others in the process, then collectively we can make a difference.”
