Growing up in the Islamic country of Saudi Arabia made the experience of being raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints unique. When her family moved back to the United States she went through a discovery phase to determine the relationship she wanted to have with the Lord. After high school she took a temporary job opportunity in Utah where she met and married her spouse in the Bountiful Temple in 1999. Today they live in Syracuse, Utah where they are busy raising their daughter, Alyssa.
In 2014, Brigit’s spouse came forward as transgender. Brigit and her spouse have been navigating the uncharted path of remaining active in the Church as a transgender couple. Through their journey, Brigit has become more involved in North Star to help grow the available gender identity resources. Brigit helped plan the 2016 North Star Conference and currently serves as the chair of the board of directors.
Within the Church, Brigit has served almost exclusively as a primary teacher. With a soft spot for Sunbeams, she is quick to volunteer to stay in the primary and currently serves as a counselor in her primary presidency.
