Whitney Johnson, Development Coordinator

Whitney is a born and bred true Oregonian! Exposed to travel at the age of four months, she grew up back and forth between the northern and southern hemispheres, but has always kept Portland in her heart. After experiencing sunlight while studying at the University of San Diego, she made the conscious decision to return home (to the rain!). Throughout her studies of International Relations, Arabic, and French, Whitney found her passion for wanting to serve others, domestically and internationally, and knew that whatever placement she found in life it would be to do good in the world. Fast forward two years and you can now find her serving as JVC Northwest’s Development Coordinator, always with a smile on her face (appropriately enough, Whitney loves travel, learning new languages, cooking new foods, and talking. A lot.).
