Biography

About Bonnie

Prior to founding School Webmasters, Bonnie was a public relations and marketing communications director. She brings over 30 years of writing and communications experience to her role. She has authored business articles, web content, white papers, company newsletters, press releases, ghost authored articles for executives, and has even had some of her short fiction published.

As a former public relations director, her experience provides her with the ability to help schools and districts develop effective websites. Bonnie's strategies drive the processes we use to turn your website and social media into effective communications resources that will improve your customer service, save time and money, and build a strong school brand. Her years of experience provide valuable recommendations to school districts about how they can more effectively use this valuable resource including suggestions about site content, architecture, and best practices in website usage and strategy, including incorporating social media, public relations and marketing channels.

Bonnie is the mother of four grown children, two are co-owners in the company, and proud Nana to eleven grandchildren (all of whom are perfect and adorable, of course). She and her husband, Tim, have been married for 44 years, and he is an assistant superintendent in an Arizona school district. 

Qualifications

Bachelor of Arts from Vermont College.

    -Educated and experienced in public relations, copywriting, and business management.

    -Co-founded School Webmasters in 2003.

Project Responsibilities

Oversees company-wide strategies for "best practices" in school site development, including recommendations for content writing, research, communication channels, and information gathering from the client. Bonnie and her administrative team provides suggestions to assure that overall client project goals are met. Bonnie works long and hard, quite happily we might add, to come up with enhancements for School Webmasters' clients and to implement solutions that provide even better customer services. 

In the past few years the company, with the help of dedicated administrators and contractors, have added several new service lines including: LocalBiz Webmasters (providing quality websites for educational organizations and businesses), print and logo or mascot design services, Social Media services and management for schools and districts, and most recently a unique new service called PR4 Schools that will provide public relations and communications support on-site for schools that need help with their communications, marketing, and public relations strategies at a fraction of the typical PR support cost. We recently developed a year-long marketing course called Marketing Your School that is available for purchase that consolidates over 15 years of marketing and PR tips for schools.
