My name is Vilma Bonilla. I was born in El Salvador. In 1981, my family and I fled to the U.S. to escape violence in the country. Luckily, we had relatives in Houston, where we made our new home.
I have four sisters and one brother and have been married for 19 years to Aty Bonilla. We have four kids and five beautiful grandkids (four boys, and one princess).
I studied at Texas School of Business and earned my Associate degree in Business Management in 1988.
My greatest joy is spending time with my grandkids, watching them play basketball and baseball. We also spend a lot of time watching our youngest daughter perform in her high school drill team, so as you know, lots of high school football games to watch. It is very exciting not only to watch our daughter perform, but to enjoy Friday night football!
I love to travel with the family and have been to places like Cancun and Jamaica, but our favorite place was the Cayman Islands. In addition to my day job, I’m a Certified Scentsy Consultant “wickless candles” and have been selling Scentsy products since 2012.
I joined the GHBA as membership coordinator in 2004, and I’m part of the Membership and Retention committees. One thing I have learned is that our members always come first; customer service has always been my priority for them.
