I am an entrepreneurial leader committed to improving the quality and reputation of today's educational innovations. Having pioneered blended learning units and initiatives in academic, corporate, medical, and not-for-profit organizations including Babson College, the University of Missouri-St Louis and the University of Massachusetts Medical School, most recently I managed Learning Design and Analytics at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In 2017 I founded Course Kitchen to provide learning design excellence to a wide variety of organizations. Clients include Groupon, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, the Institute of Management Accountants, and the Georgia Center for Nonprofits. Now, as Director of Online Learning at Bryant University, Bonnie collaborates with faculty in the creation of the University's first online degree program, the Professional MBA, and teaches the Strategies for Success course for new online learners. I am available for freelance projects that can be completed on a flexible schedule.

I earned a B.S. in Mathematics from Salve Regina University and M.A. in Adult Education from the University of Rhode Island. I am currently working toward a Doctor of Education from Northeastern University, focusing on online pedagogies, learning analytics, and educational leadership.
