Assistant District Governor Billie Addleman suggested to one of his young law associates that she might look at the "morning" Rotary Club since she liked to start her day earlier. Billie brought Bridgette Gallagher to a Cheyenne Sunrise Rotary Club meeting and she liked what she saw. She is an associate at Hirst Applegate, where she has practiced law since 2013. Prior to joining Hirst Applegate, Bridgette was a law clerk in the Fifth Judicial District in Cody, Wyoming for the Honorable Steven Cranfill.
