Bridget Guidry loves to feel sand between her toes. The sound of waves crashing and her children laughing puts her at ease. She enjoys the warmth from the sun and the coolness from a glass filled with lemonade. Spending a day at the beach with her family is Guidry’s oasis.
But on most days, Guidry doesn’t have time to search for seashells. Instead she is trying to survive what she calls the “day-to-day organized chaos” of being a mother, friend and teacher.
Before Guidry came to Nicholls in 2003, she was a practicing nurse. For two years, she worked as a nurse practitioner at Houma OB-GYN, and for three years she worked in the Terrebonne General Medical Center intensive care unit.
Guidry says her greatest accomplishments are her children, education and independence. As an assistant professor of nursing, she most enjoys the flexibility of the job as well as the bond with her colleagues and students.
