Bridget Chadwick - Resident is originally from the Chicago area, but currently resides in Northern Michigan. She began her residency in the Traverse City office in August 2017 to become a board eligible prosthetist, orthotist. Bridget graduated from Saint Louis University with her Bachelor of Science in Pre-Occupational Therapy.

She graduated with her Masters of Orthotics and Prosthetics at Northwestern University Prosthetic Orthotic Center, in 2017. Bridget's aspirations to become a certified prosthetist orthotist stems from a background and personal history of dealing with the field. Bridget's older brother wore AFOs as a child and witnessing his progression and the support provided by his Orthotist is what inspired Bridget to make this a career. She believes there are not many jobs where you can truly combine patient advocacy with art and science – so she is very fortunate to have joined the Teter family.
She has a personal interest in traveling and learning about other cultures, especially trying different ethnic food. She has had a blast living in Northern Michigan and exploring all the beautiful water and abundant outdoor activities that the state has to offer. She has two Goldendoodle dogs named Gertie and Mabel, as well as a Bernedoodle dog niece named Lula.
