Bernarda has spent her entire life in Coos County.

She has worked more than 25 years in social services including a number of years working with community members with I/DD.  She joined Connections in 2021, where she found a rewarding career helping individuals achieve their goals and live their best lives.

Outside of work, Bernarda and Dennis enjoy spending time with each others adult children and growing number of many grandchildren.  She loves camping, gardening and spending as much time at the beach as possible.
