Bright hosts the local radio show “HeartBeat” on Rainier Avenue Radio and has spoken on both King 5 and Q13 stations about necessary change needed for progress for all people, the release states.

“I have over 20 years of experience as a people champion, an advocate for under-represented people and change agent for Fortune 500 corporations to address challenges for them to become more inclusive,” she said in a press release. “I know how to make the changes that matter.”
