Brigitte joined the Women’s Board in July 2023 as Director. She came to the University from the Lycée Franҫais de Chicago where she remains a member of the Board of Trustees and Chair of the Development Committee. In this diverse, multi-cultural community, Brigitte has found success in raising the sights of fellow Board members in their philanthropic engagement with the school; in leading a group of volunteers to raise $10M+ over two years for a capital campaign; and in leading a volunteer-based program that achieved 90%+ annual fund participation from Lycée families.
Brigitte was also Managing Director of Compass Pro Bono, a national nonprofit that trains and places volunteers in pro bono consulting assignments in local nonprofits. At Compass Pro Bono she developed the case for support for the organization and led Chicago-based major gift strategy and implementation. Earlier in her career Brigitte worked in business development at KPMG, and in marketing and strategy planning at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
Brigitte holds an MBA from UC Berkeley, Haas School of Business. She speaks multiple languages and in her free time, she loves to cook, eat, and travel.
Brigitte is excited to lead the Women’s Board program at UChicago to enhance and strengthen the impact of this important group of volunteers on the University’s philanthropic, engagement and community-building goals.
