After working part-time for GatewayTitle in the summer of 2014, Bonnie decided to return to the Title industry to become a permanent member of Gateway's team in the fall of 2015. By 2016 she had started to oversee the opening of a satellite Gateway Title office in Manchester, TN.
Bonnie has a diverse educational and professional background, first graduating with a Bachelor's of Science in Communication and Criminal Justice from MTSU and later obtaining a Masters (M.A.) in Counseling. She received her National Certification for Counseling (NCE), after passing state and national board exams, and worked in both Coffee County and the Nashville Metro school system counseling students.
Prior to her career in counseling, Bonnie worked closely with attorneys at three different law firms over eight years where she gained extensive experience in real estate, civil litigation and estate law. Her background in the legal/title industry, educational credentials, and work experience as a counselor all contributed to making Bonnie uniquely qualified for the role she has held as Director of Operations in the Murfreesboro office. Always positive and full of energy, Bonnie has proven herself to be a skilled multi-tasker and project manager. More recently as Manager of Gateway Title's new Manchester location, Bonnie has been working in the business development arena to promote and grow Gateway's newest office while still conducting many of Gateway's closings in both Murfreesboro and Manchester.
Bonnie is married to husband Xan, owner of Trueline Fence Company and a Firefighter and Advanced EMT for the City of Manchester. They also live in Manchester with son Zeke Alexander born in April of 2015. In addition to enjoying numerous outdoor pursuits with Xan (running, hiking, biking, kayaking, boating and wake-boarding to name a few), Bonnie loves spending time with wonderful friends and her big immediate family which includes 13 nieces and nephews. She also enjoys mentoring young adults and children.
Bonnie and her family currently attend New Vision Baptist Church in Murfreesboro and First Baptist Church in Manchester.
