Medicaid Legal Assistant
She started working in a nursing home even before she graduated from high school. After she graduated, she worked in many different areas of the nursing home—activities, social services, care planning coordinator, and marketing. Bonnie did an excellent job in nursing home sales, but she always felt uncomfortable with the fact that most people really didn’t want to move there.
It was then that she met her mentor, Bette Schoenholtz, Executive Director of Senior Services Associates, Inc. This opened up a whole new world for her, in that she could now work to connect seniors with the resources that would allow them continued independence at home. She felt that it was very rewarding, and that the seniors were grateful for the assistance that was provided. Her mentor, Ms. Schoenholtz, taught her how to be a fair administrator, to understand business systems, and how to act carefully so as to achieve positive outcomes.
Bonnie brings to Law ElderLaw her vast experience in dealing with seniors throughout our local community. She is considered by many to be an expert in the area of Medicaid in the community.
Bonnie enjoys reading, being with family, and watching her young Steven “play, grow, learn, and realize his independence.” She also admits to being “a little addicted” to facebook games (and to sushi!). When she’s not working, she loves to travel with her family to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan or to the Wisconsin Dells.
