Outside of her esteemed work in the real estate industry in Los Altos, California, Kathy Bridgman has always been involved in the arts. Today, she announces her support of both the Community School of Music and Arts, a non-profit organization serving multiple cities in the Bay Area of California, and Arts and Mountain View Theatre Works in Mountain View, California.
Prior to receiving her broker’s license in 1998, Kathy Bridgman was a junior high school teacher and curriculum developer in the Cupertino and Los Altos school districts. While her work is now wholly centered in the real estate industry, Kathy Bridgman’s roots are in education. Kathy Bridgman s deeply invested in furthering children’s enrichment. “It’s so important to support extracurricular activities,” says Kathy Bridgman. “I believe in a holistic approach to education, and the arts are absolutely instrumental to the development of the whole child.”
Working with and for youth remains at the heart of Kathy Bridgman’s interests. She supports Mountain View Theatre Works because of their innovation in re-imagining classic musicals and other theatre productions. Mountain View Theatre Works is also highly committed to honoring and celebrating diversity in the arts, often featuring plays and musicals that reflect the experiences and cultures of many different minorities in the Bay Area. Kathy Bridgman feels honored to support a theatre company that recognizes all talents, regardless of people’s backgrounds.
Both Mountain View Theatre Works and the Community School of Music and Arts both focus on programs for children and teens. The Community School of Music and arts is the largest non-profit in the Bay Area that supports art education programs for community members across demographics of age, skill, and economic background. Both organizations are committed to serving minorities in the area, which Kathy Bridgman believes deeply in supporting.
“As a former school teacher,” says Kathy Bridgman, “I can definitely say that I recognize and value the talent and intellect of youth across all demographics. It is important to me to support organizations that recognize diversity and value equality. Both the Community School of Music and Arts and Mountain View Theatre Works are committed to this cause.”
