Brigid Downey

Welcome to my corner of the internet.

Hi there, I’m Brigid and I’m a blogger and marketing manager. I grew up in Boston surrounded by books and a desire to put my whole heart into everything I take on. In my undergraduate program at MCLA, I was a research conference speaker and held leadership roles as part of Her Campus, the Spires Literary Magazine, and the Sigma Tau Delta Honor Society. I was also inducted into the National Society of Leadership and Success. And finally, as part of my senior year, I was a finalist for the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Challenge for my business plan to help women with PCOS and Endometriosis. I graduated from MCLA with a major in English Communications and a minor in Business Administration.

Currently, I run my own lifestyle blog at where I write about books, my own writing, beauty, body-positive topics, current events, and more.
