    Bonnie Pollard-Johnson has 35+ years of healthcare experience, nearly 20 of which have been spent as a regional and local director helping to guide Benchmark communities.

    What Brought You to Benchmark:

    In 2001, I saw the old school that is now our location being renovated and told myself I would work there one day. Meeting seniors’ needs and enabling them to live the way they want in our beautiful Mystic community was very appealing!

    I am proud to be a Mystic resident, enjoying connections in and outside of Academy Point.
