Bonnie is a prominent model, philanthropist, real estate agent and independent distributor for Xocai Healthy Chocolates.
Bonnie was honored at Dream Extreme 2010 and has been participating in the Kiteboarding Clinic ever since. Her generosity and support has helped raise more than $400,000 for Victims of Domestic Violence. Bonnie is now committed to the sport, and continues to travel the world in search of wind.
Bonnie says, "I started windsurfing in the late 80's to help clear my head and heart after a tough breakup. To survive on the water, you must focus. It is very healing and empowering to find that perfect balance between the wind, the water, your equipment and your heart. By channeling that strength, I have been able to achieve many successes in my life, especially the inner rewards of helping others."
Bonnie started her accomplished philanthropic legacy as the Founding Director of the modeling industry's first non-profit organization, the DISHES Project for Pediatric AIDS. For more than a decade she hosted over 35 DISHES fundraising events across the nation. She dedicated her life working to generate funding and awareness for direct care, education and prevention for children impacted by HIV/ AIDS and their families.
