Brigid aspired to becoming a doctor but it was not her destiny.
Instead, she spent 13 years in the life assurance industry, before following her heart, and training as a natural medicines therapist.
Brigid practiced and taught natural medicines for 20 years, teaching at Stirling University's Open Studies and Summer Schools from 1993 to 1999, setting up the Scottish School of Holistic Healing plus a therapy centre and shop in Stirling, Scotland.
In 1999, she relocated to Donegal, Ireland - the home of her ancestors. Four years later she succumbed to a mystery illness, which was eventually diagnosed as fibromyalgia and possible rheumatoid arthritis.
"Stopping the World," forced Brigid to reassess her life, and thus she began retraining in organic horticulture. She taught this subject in schools until recently.
Creative writing has been an integral part of her self healing regime.
