I’m Bridgette O’Connor and I’m a professional writer, editor and part-time privacy and security specialist.
By day, I handle the marketing program for GRA Benefits Group, including social media, email marketing, brand management and HIPAA compliance consulting. Outside of my day job, I spend time creating new recipes, hanging out with my chickens and managing a farm with my husband.

As the Assistant Director of e-Philanthropy for MSU my main goal is to generate donors and donor revenue through email. I’ve grown the email program more than 440% since I began my job. My emails perform well above my peers based on bench marking rates from M+R, Blackbaud and MailChimp. I’m exploring new ways to use email in our annual giving programs. I’m also using segmenting and testing to improve the results from emails.
I created a weekly newsletter for GRA Benefits Group. It contained blog posts I created as well as curated news content. In the first half of 2015, we experienced phenomenal growth in engagement with the newsletter, due to our focus on A/B testing.
