A Finnish-American, Johanna grew up calling both Seattle and Helsinki home. Prior to joining the team at Washington Conservation Voters, she worked with the program team at Make-A-Wish Alaska & Washington. She is a graduate from the University of Washington, where she earned a B.A. in Linguistics. There she developed a passion for fundraising and philanthropy, having had the opportunity to work closely with volunteers and organize events. Outside the office you can find her dinghy sailing on Puget Sound, trying to learn a new language, or quilting.
