Bonny has a long history in this community. Her parents moved to Lake Country in 1968 and have lived here ever since. She went to high school and graduated from George Elliot Secondary. She got married, moved away, started a family and then returned to this community. She returned for several reasons - there was family support here for her; there were school and recreational opportunities for her children, and job opportunities for herself. Her family has lived in this community since 1990.
Bonny is an active member in the Creekside Players and was a member on the shared use facility committee when George Elliot was updated.
In her professional life, she is a Registered Nurse with a wide variety of experience. She currently teaches in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at UBC-Okanagan and is also a casual nurse in the Emergency department of Kelowna General Hospital.
