Bonnie Gibson’s archaeological career started as a child, excavating projectile points and Civil War artifacts on Liberty Plantation in King George County, Virginia, where she was raised. She moved to Colorado in 1997, attending the University of Colorado for her BA. She also holds an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Business, and is currently pursuing her MA from the University of Leicester. She has many years of archaeological experience in the western states and Mexico. Before launching into a career in archaeology, she was a jet-setting business consultant.
She is currently in business development for the Colorado office and is an archaeological field supervisor. She has been with CRA since 2011. Since joining CRA, she has been involved with large scale projects across the west, and is an author on all associated reports. Her true passion is the analysis and reconstruction of prehistoric pottery of the High Plains and Southwest. She has completed several large ceramic analysis projects in Colorado and New Mexico, and has given numerous talks and classes to local archaeology groups, and at professional conferences.
Bonnie lives in beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado, with her husband Patrick and their dog Shiloh. When she is not working, Bonnie enjoys time at home trying to beat her husband in Trivial Pursuit, or in the studio blowing glass.
