Is there anything Bridgit Mendler can't do?

Mendler is not only a former Disney star and a talented, soulful singer – she also earned her PhD from MIT and earned her JD from Harvard Law School. That's right, Mendler is a real-life Barbie.

But she's not done winning. On February 19, 2024, the Good Luck Charlie star was announced as CEO after launching the startup Northwood Space. Northwood aims to mass produce ground stations, or teleports, which are large and circular antennas that connect satellites in space.

“The vision is a data highway between Earth and space,” Mendler told CNBC. “Space is getting easier along so many different dimensions but still the actual exercise of sending data to and from space is difficult. You have difficulty finding an access point for contacting your satellite.”

Bridgit Mendler Announces She’s a Mom

Mendler also announced that she is now a proud mom! Impressive, right? She can do it all.

"The other news I wanted to share is I’m a mama to a sweet 4yo boy. Started fostering in 2021 adopted near Christmas of 2022," she wrote on X (formerly Twitter), followed by a photo of her family.

"I’m so lucky — being a parent is the biggest gift and most defining experience there is that’s my news for now folks."
