About Bonnie

weeping-willow-peek-a-boo-198x300this is Me

My life has been graced with a rainbow of experiences.  I’ve experienced suffering as a child and have grown to be wonderfully happy.  I have made my share of mistakes, which now sprinkle my life with wisdom and clarity.  I’ve experienced divorce and now have a patient and loving husband.  I’ve lost children.  I have gained three bright and enthusiastic boys.  I’ve experienced injury that took away a college soccer.  I have transformed into a strong woman, able to complete Ironman Wisconsin.  I’ve found helped all along the way.  My passion and purpose is to pay it forward, having as much juicy fun as humanly possible.

I am a wife, homeschooling mom of three boys, founder of Braving Karma Coaching and triathlete.   I understand busy, frustrations and obstacles that get in your way.   As a health coach and accomplished yoga teacher, I can help you get clear, get moving and keep out of your own way!
