Having over 20 years experience, makes me a jack-of-all trades when it comes to all things design and prepress related. My goal is to make our clients happy and priority number 1.
If I was not “forced” to work Monday-Friday, I would spend even more of my time hiking and hanging out with my wife and 2 kids (a.k.a. dogs) and racing my bicycle around San Diego. Oh and have a few beers too…..
I am Bonita Roach, Account Manager for Intelligent Blends. My job is to be the interface between our clients, the sales team and our production staff.

As a self -proclaimed health enthusiast and competitive athlete, my R&D team and I enjoy bringing new products & formulation innovation and wellness inspired products to market for my clients.
In my off time I can be found roaming the Pacific Northwest towing my trailer in search of big waves to surf and deep powder to ski, and open water to paddle on my SUP with my awesome wife and Australian Shepherd “Kai”.
Let me help your team bring a new, or tried and true single serve product range to market this year!
