Brigette lives in North Liberty with her husband Brian, energetic daughter Kate (October 2014) and their two cats, Penny and Olive. Originally from the Chicago suburbs, Brigette came to Iowa City to attend the journalism school at the University of Iowa, fell in love with the area, and decided she couldn’t leave. After meeting Brian while working at the same Iowa City restaurant in college, they got married in August 2015 in the heart of downtown. She works full time in project management and as an employee of the Core Fitness Kids Club while finishing her MBA at Upper Iowa University. In her free time, she drags Kate out garage sale-ing, tries to keep up with her reading list and runs, lives for Hawkeye football season, enjoys a good meal on a patio, runs her Bachelor/Bachelorette bracket with her family and friends, and of course, chases her daughter around the pool and the park.


  1. Hi Brigette, We just moved to Iowa City last year. Because of pandemic we haven’t really explored to much. I’ve been using your posts to make a Things to Do & Places to Visit list for when things finally settle down. I just read that this Saturday is Iowa City’s City Wide Garage Sale. I have a couple of questions about the event and I thought you’d be a good person to ask. 1. Do you know if there is a list of addresses participating in this event or do shoppers rely on posted signs? #2. Is the city wide sale sponsored by the city or a is it independently organized promoted by those who plan to have a sale? We plan to participate and I am trying to decide how to let folks know about our sale. Any suggestions or info you could share would be so appreciated 🙂 Thanks a bunch, Amanda
