Bridget McCormack is a Catholic Campus Minister of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, currently serving the Hofstra University community.
After graduating from St. Joseph's College in Patchogue, NY with a degree in English and a minor in Religious Studies, Bridget spent a year as a full-time volunteer with the Christian Appalachian Project, serving as an elderly caseworker in Owsley County, Kentucky. Upon her return to Long Island, she spent some time with the Campus Ministry department at her alma mater before ultimately being blessed with the opportunity to serve the Hofstra community in 2012. Bridget is currently working toward a Master of Nonprofit Administration from the University of Notre Dame.
When she isn't hanging out with amazing Hofstra students in the Interfaith Center, she enjoys volunteering, visiting friends around the country, and a good banjo breakdown. And, yes, she snorts when she laughs.
