Bonnie Smalling

Bonnie Smalling

Administrative Assistant

Born just 30 minutes from where Re-Creation Retreat (RCR) resides, Bonnie is what we call a local. Her family had helped pioneer vast areas of Northern Arizona and Utah, from Lee’s ferry to Salt Lake City. Growing up in the small red rock town of Kanab, Utah, Bonnie knew her roots would be planted in Kanab since the day she met and married her husband of 20 years, Dan. Both enjoy the outdoors, hiking, camping, or just relaxing with their two fur companions (doggos) Raven and Monster. Bonnie also enjoys cooking home artisan meals for family, friends, or just for herself! Sometimes she likes to sing in the shower or go dancing in the rain!

Her outtake on life is, “Live while you can because life only offer one true promise and that is nothing lasts forever”.

As a young girl she spent a respectable amount of time reading, writing poetry and short stories, and ran a family newspaper with her many siblings and cousins. One day destined to apply these skills to a career. That chance was given on November of 2017 when she joined the Re-Creation Retreat family as their Administrator Assistant. This giving her the chance to evolve her skills and enthusiasm of learning.
