Bonnie Hendrix, Captain for Jacksonville
Bonnie Hendrix is a retired Senior Human Resource Professional (SCP). In her career she served as Director of Human Resources accountable for Business Partner Relationships, Enterprise Learning and Development, Succession Management, Performance Management, Employee Engagement and Executive Education.
She has a history of community engagement and leadership serving on a Community College Board and various Committees, as Chair of a Veteran's Employee Resource Group (VetNet), and serving on the North Florida ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve) Committee. Bonnie retired from the US Air Force Reserves, as an Airlift Control Operations Officer where she was responsible for planning and overseeing global airlift operations. Bonnie is a Desert Storm veteran.
A native of Savannah, GA, Bonnie became acutely aware of racial and gender based discrimination at an early age and was labeled as “different” and “stubborn” by her family because she refused to accept the status quo. She is a lifelong resistor of racial, gender, and class oppression, and an outspoken advocate for equality and women’s rights. Like many others, Bonnie was shocked by the election results and trekked to Washington D.C. to voice her disdain. For the last year she has been instrumental in supporting Women’s March in the NE Florida region and building coalitions to fight social injustice.
Bonnie resides in Jacksonville Beach, FL, with her partner, Mary. When not fulfilling her activist calling, Bonnie enjoys golfing, traveling, sewing, and spending time with her step-children and eight grandchildren.
