Bonnie graduated from Trinity College Dublin where she completed a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature. She then studied at the University of Nottingham where she completed an M.A. in Medieval English and later gained her PhD in English Studies in 2000 by examining the fourteenth-century alliterative romance entitled the "Siege of Jerusalem" in its social, literary and historical contexts. In 2014 she received an additional M.A. from Trinity College Dublin. During and following the completion of her PhD, Bonnie held tutorships at the W.E.A., University of Nottingham and the University of Leicester, before becoming audit and compliance co-ordinator at Central College (formerly Castle College). She holds a postgraduate qualification in Management and has recently completed her Associate Teacher Training, gaining Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. Bonnie joined the NIHR Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Unit in 2014 to work on the QUIET-1 clinical trial. Currently she is Musculoskeletal Project Manager for the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre.
