She has worked with managers and trainers in the former Soviet Union, Canada and Mexico, teaching them alternative ways to resolve conflicts and manage change. She uses mediation techniques to improve relationships in business.

One of her major accomplishments at Pacific Bell was to coordinate interdepartmental efforts to develop their integrated Systems Architecture Plan. She facilitated the reorganization of technical and non-technical staff as part of the migration of the service order processing system to the new architecture. During this transition she helped the groups merge successfully, resolving basic issues and conflicts as they arose.

Bonnie loves to work with computers, and teaches people ways to use the computer as a tool for personal and business purposes. She especially enjoys working with individuals in transition.
