Jeni Johnson

 Program Manager

Originally from Alaska, Jeni has spent the last 12 years as a proud resident of East Oakland. She received her B.A. in Women and Gender Studies from Amherst College and her M.A. in Dramatic Literature from San Francisco State University. With 15 years of experience in the educational nonprofit sector, she is deeply committed to closing the education gap for low-income children and families. She is thrilled to be working with ECBA’s dedicated staff and volunteers to support BayArea K-3 graders in developing the literacy skills they need to succeed in school and life. Outside of work, Jeni tends her urban garden, hikes the Oakland hills, and works on community beautification projects.
