Bonnie Friedman is passionate about hospital healthcare. Her expertise is hard won, based on more than 24 years of advocating for her husband through 14 separate hospitalizations—some fairly routine, some quite dramatic and some truly life-and-death experiences.
Today her husband is thriving, and Bonnie is sharing her experience through speaking, writing and blogging to help others get the best care for their loved ones too.
Before writing Hospital Warrior, Bonnie started her own communications consulting firm, specializing in public, non-profit and small business clients. The consultancy grew from her many years of working for the federal government in a variety of positions including Communications Director of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Director of Marketing of the Small Business Administration.
She began her career at the National Institutes of Health after graduating from American University in Washington, DC. Bonnie is the recipient of numerous professional honors and awards. She is also an accomplished public speaker and blogger.
Bonnie and her husband Bob have two grown children and live in Silver Spring, MD, and Bradenton, FL. They enjoy traveling, spending time with family and going to the beach.
