But Bonnie's understanding of how necessary the Foster City Village is to people that may require a helping hand goes well beyond her profession. When Bonnie’s oldest daughter was born requiring special needs, Bonnie became a champion for her daughter and others in the disabled community by devoting time and energy on the PARCA Board and other similar organizations. She feels her calling is to be an advocate for giving a voice in whatever manner she is able to smooth out the rough patches that people undergo. Her business is a watchdog for the care and concern of folks that need support and she mentioned that after the Christmas holidays, the census increases for people to be placed in care facilities.
Despite having been a Foster City resident for 25 years, Bonnie is a true blue third generation San Franciscan. She was born in the elevator of the San Francisco Children’s Hospital and her mother was grateful that the birth did not take place in the car.
Bonnie has had a variety of Peninsula addresses, but always felt that Foster City was the perfect place to form relationships within a community. She remembers calling her neighbors to make sure her children had returned from school. That’s what makes the Village a perfect place for Bonnie - who is a "natural" when it comes to looking out for those who might need a ride, a home cooked meal, or a pharmacy pick up.
As an officer of the Village Board of Directors, Bonnie has a vision for our future which includes stimulating lectures on various subjects and continued social interactions in the coming months to enhance participation within the Village membership.
I truly felt the passion and verve of her commitment, and sense that her clients have found the perfect advocate.
