Sarah Johnson

Sarah Johnson (Neahkahnie) trained to be a high school language arts teacher, but in reality, she spent most of her professional life working in the nonprofit world. She served 22 years as Executive Director of Portland-based Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washington. After retirement, she began consulting with other nonprofit organizations in general areas of management, planning, and resource development.  She worked first with Portland-based organizations, and then, following relocation from Portland to Neahkahnie in 2015, she advised a number of North Coast nonprofits.

Fun fact:  Sarah lives on Neahkahnie property purchased by her parents in 1960.  In 2003, she and her late husband,Tony, remodeled the family home there, making sure it represented 60 years of deep family roots, including a courtyard that is studded with bricks from the chimney of her parents’ first house on the property, and a yard that blooms with shrubs that her parents planted decades ago.
