Bridgett Parris, MBA

Shifting gears to lead through the chaos in starting new ventures or leading cross-disciplinary strategic initiatives isn’t what you find in most financial executives. But this connotes the strength of Ms. Bridgett Parris. After operating a successful financial firm for more than 16years, she launched and established one of the leading not-for-profit organizations in Florida advancing the cause for women impacted by gynecologic cancers.

Ms. Parris is a graduate from the University of Houston-Victoria with a B.A. in Business Administration & Healthcare Management and an MBA in Management.

Ms. Parris also volunteered at several other nonprofit organizations; she is a celebrated member of the community. Ms. Parris is a recipient of numerous accolades for her impressive leadership and work in the community and abroad. She is a wonderful mother and a blessed grandmother.
