Meet our finance team: Bridgette Foerster and Emily Priefert

Bridgette Foerster and Emily Priefert keep Civic Nebraska fiscally sound and moving forward.


Civic Nebraska’s finance team, which keeps our organization fiscally sound and moving forward, added and promoted two staff members this summer.

Bridgette Foerster, our finance and operations manager, has been with Civic Nebraska since 2020, was promoted in August to oversee all aspects of finance and operations for our organization. Bridgette is a native of Lincoln, an alumna of both Lincoln Southwest High School and Southeast Community College, and works closely with Civic Nebraska administration and staff to keep us on budget and oversee our accounting processes.

“I love working at Civic Nebraska because of the family feeling, the care and passion that everyone has about our jobs, and the willingness and drive to create an even better organization,” she said.

Bridgette and her husband live in northwest Lincoln, have a very energetic 3-year-old daughter and just this week welcomed a baby boy to their family. She’s a big Husker football and Green Bay Packers fan, and also enjoys going to Husker soccer and Lincoln Stars hockey games, and spending time outside with her growing family.

Meanwhile, Emily Priefert joined Civic Nebraska earlier this year as our new finance and operations coordinator. Emily, of Valparaiso, works across Civic Nebraska’s programs to support our staff and growth and to coordinate accounting and human resources. She also is the office and vendor coordinator. Emily is currently completing her associate of business degree from Southeast Community College, and she enjoys spending her free time with family, friends, and her dog, Roxy. She’s also recently discovered the fun of upcycling furniture.

We’re so very fortunate to have Bridgette and Emily at Civic Nebraska. Join us in congratulating them on their new roles!
