: Meet the Abbey Consulting Team!

BonnieFounder and CEO

Abbey Consulting was founded by Bonnie de Manincor in 2006 to provide rehabilitation consultation services to individuals and their families struggling with management of traumatic and catastrophic injury from automobile accidents and work injuries. Abbey Consulting specializes in traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple complex fractures, and amputation case management. Bonnie is a registered nurse and has her Bachelors’ Degree from Mercy College, as well as a certification in case management.

 

Bonnie has personal experience with trauma when her mother sustained a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) in 1997. She witnessed the family’s frustrations, emotional strain, and physical demands surrounding her mother’s care. As a result of Bonnie’s personal experience and extensive clinical knowledge of managing catastrophic injuries, she is compassionate with her clients and their family members. She is a strong patient advocate.

 

Bonnie enjoys gardening, traveling, golfing, boating, bird-watching, and she is an avid scrapbooker. She cherishes time spent with her family and her grandchildren. She has a strong love for animals, and usually has her Yorkshire Terrier, Rudi, close to her. Rudi is also the office mascot.
