Bridgeman, a 1992 graduate of Laramie High School, is a member of the Wyoming Center for Legal Aid board and the Wyoming Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. She coaches youth basketball in Laramie.

Bridgeman will take over as interim dean for Easton, whose resignation is effective Nov. 15.
