When she was a young child, Bonnie’s parents shared stories of their Scottish and Irish heritage. Ancestry research led her to her connection to Clan Rose, Kilravock Castle, to Baron Hugh Rose, the 13th of Kilravock and to literally hundreds upon hundreds of distant Rose cousins. Bonnie has visited Kilravock Castle and Scotland to study history and ancestry on three occasions.
Professionally, Bonnie worked as a healthcare consultant with a focus on reimbursement and regulatory compliance in physician professional services. She was an independent consultant for 20 years before joining the Healthcare Regulatory team of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in 1999 as a Senior Manager.
