25 Jul Emily Johnson
Emily comes with a background in personal communication and hands-on management – which, combined with her interest in philanthropy, makes her a perfect fit for the Community Foundation Sonoma County. As a Philanthropic Planning Assistant, Emily supports the Philanthropic Planning team through research and administration.
She graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a BA in History, and an emphasis in Middle Eastern History after spending a year abroad in Cairo. She continues to learn, with a special interest in languages.
When not at work or learning, she spends her time primarily outdoors—camping, hiking, playing with her four dogs, and traveling. Emily is passionate about the environment and animals, which is where much of her volunteer time goes, as well. She enjoys fostering animals, beach cleanups, and supporting historical societies.
