Bonnie Green is the assistant director, producer and business manager of The MENding. Bonnie studied both Theater and Broadcast Journalism at Indiana University. The MENding provided the perfect outlet for her passion and gifts as both an actress and writer, where the “Path to Worthiness” was born. From the MENding, Bonnie was inspired to create a one-day workshop for high-school girls called the “Beauty in Imperfection” where girls learn to love and accept their bodies. They overcome self-limiting beliefs and gain a strong sense of self-love and recognize their own unique inner beauty. By day, Bonnie works as the National Account Manager for Gaia Herbs, servicing Whole Foods and Vitamin Shoppe Nationally.
