A lifelong passion for serving others drove Bonnie Smith to open a comprehensive financial planning practice in 1992. She continues to help individuals and families today as a financial adviser for Creative Financial Centre, a Gleaner Financial® partner.
Bonnie regularly meets with her clients to update their plans and to ensure their ultimate goals are within reach. Helping clients plan for the future has helped many retire confidently while achieving their retirement goals.
Bonnie motivates her clients to become better stewards with the resources they have been entrusted. She actively serves her church and other churches with stewardship workshops, is a member of various professional and financial organizations, and completes several hours of continuing education annually.
Bonnie’s husband, Eric, is a long-time UAW member and retired from General Motors in 2009. Bonnie has served UAW members since 1992. While Bonnie’s practice is not limited to union members, she has a special place in her heart for the members and helps them properly arrange and utilize their benefits, including in-depth 401(k) and retirement planning. She is a member of the UAW Region 1D Women’s Council, the Union Label Committee and the Coalition of Labor Union Women.
Bonnie and her husband, Eric, reside in Clio, Michigan and have two children and three granddaughters. Bonnie and her extended family enjoy celebrating birthdays and holidays together, and during the summer months enjoy time at Cedar Lake in northern Michigan.
