Bridget Schilling is a summer legal intern at the O’Neill Institute.

Schilling is interested in health systems and equitable access, bodily autonomy, reproductive health law, and the role of health systems in structural oppression.

Prior to joining the O’Neill Institute, Schilling was a research associate at Lone Star Justice Alliance in Austin, Texas. In their role, Schilling supported programs that approach recidivism in emerging adults as a public health issue and advocated for trauma-informed alternatives to extreme sentencing for youths and incarceration for survivors of trafficking and abuse.

Schilling has also been active in efforts to increase abortion access for Texans. Since 2017, Schilling has been a volunteer for a Houston-based abortion fund that provides practical support to people seeking abortions, and has been on the Board of Directors since 2019.

Schilling is currently a law student at Georgetown University Law Center. Schilling holds a master’s degree in public health from the University of Texas with a certificate in health disparities. Their focus included health systems and policy, health care payment systems, and maternal morbidity and mortality.
