As part-time development associate, Bonni is responsible for planning our fundraiser, Reel Hope Boulder; getting to know the community; cultivating donors; and working with our staff to educate the community to support the growth of the Boulder program.

Prior to becoming a mother, Bonni was a nationally recognized health and wellness consultant with 25 years of experience, including working in the medical field with the aging population. She is a very active volunteer in the Boulder Jewish community, proud wife to Joshua, and adoring mother to their four-and-a-half-year-old daughter. She grew up in New Jersey and lived in Miami Beach for 20 years prior to moving to Boulder in 2006.

In addition to her vast knowledge as an entrepreneurial pioneer in wellness, her areas of experience also include fundraising, sales, marketing, management, event planning, building partnerships, and community building.

Bonni truly enjoys connecting with people. Every day is infused with personal self-drive, enthusiasm for life, and for the organization which she supports. Bonni works tirelessly to show how volunteering to support the organizations in your community transforms lives—including your own—and often uses the motto: When one can’t serve, give. Every small action and dollar makes a significant difference in the world in which we live.
