Bonnie has been described as having an ability to make people feel comfortable in stressful situations due to her warm, genuine nature.
Bonnie offers support and planning as employees or students who have been on a medical or compassion leave, or are returning to the workforce after layoff, can learn to manage their return to work or school.

Discussions to explore what is needed to physically and emotionally prepare for these changes can enhance a successful transition.
