Bonita Clemons


My road in life took a while to figure out.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in accounting and economics from Benedict College.
After graduating, I got a job as an internal auditor for a bank.
I spent two years as an internal auditor before deciding to make a career change because I didn’t enjoy the environment.
I tried many different jobs as I tried to find a space that felt right to me.
I was in a car accident that put me in the hospital and caused me chronic pain for years—I eventually decided to replace medications with healthy food and get my Master of Public Health.
When I lost my mom at age 42, I realized I wanted to help the community with their health issues by educating them about holistic health.
I started Dianne’s Call, a nonprofit organization with a mission to optimize community health and connect families with fresh fruits and vegetables.
I also have a for-profit company, Bonita Global, that connects farmers to resources.
