Trustees & Advisors

We honor and thank our Volunteer Leadership for their extraordinary commitment to the children of San Diego.

August 2020: Rady Children's Hospital Foundation welcomes Bridgett Brown as its FY21 Board of Trustees Chair. Bridgett serves on the Hospital Quality, Safety and Medical Affairs Committee and most recently served for two years as the Foundation Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees. She is immediate past president of Rady Children's Hospital Auxiliary and has been actively involved with the volunteer organization as a member of the Poway Unit since 2006, going on to serve as Unit Council Vice President, Fund Development Vice President and Hospital Liaison.

Bridgett received her bachelor's in communicative disorders and later earned her teaching credential and master's in curriculum and instruction from San Diego State University.
