Name: Katie Johnson
Title: Wish Support Manager
Before joining Make-A-Wish Arizona: After I graduated from The University of Arizona, I worked for Yelp, Inc. for just under a year, where I established relationships with a wide range of individuals in the community, while consulting with business owners about their business operations and personal goals. I have always had a passion about the vision and values of Make-A-Wish. This interest started when I worked with special needs kids in high school and continued when my best friend’s little sister became a Wish Kid!
Education: I received my Bachelors of Science in Business Administration at the University of Arizona and currently am taking courses at Arizona State University in the college of Public Programs.
About me: I grew up in Sammamish, Washington, and enjoy all things Seahawks and snow related! In my spare time, I love to travel and try new things. I am blessed with an amazing family and community who I would not be able to live without!
My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Arizona: The staff at the Wish House is comparable to a second family and it feels good to wake up every morning and love what you do. I am truly eager to create the best possible experiences for “our” Wish Kids and volunteers and add to the momentum of granting more wishes!
My wish would be: To go to Thailand and eat the street food!
