One of our favorite things about Bonnie is her baking. Every year, she bakes 12-15 varieties of cookies, around 300 cookies in total, for Christmas. She spends an entire weekend baking cookies for the office which usually lasts only a week in our kitchen!  Bonnie is always willing to help and train new employees. Her compassion, patience, and friendliness are just a few of her greatest attributes. Thank you for everything you do, Bonnie!
