Johanna Ortis has worked for her entire career as a bookkeeper and operations manager for non-profits, most recently at MyPath (powering youth potential, seeding economic mobility) in San Francisco and SAGE (Sustainable Agriculture Education) in Berkeley.
Mrs. Ortis grew up in a very small community on the coast of Oregon where she attended an independent school about the size of PBA, and had parents who volunteered and invested lots of time and energy into the school community. She has two children, a thirteen-year-old girl and a ten-year-old boy. Her husband is a singer/songwriter, and she helps manage his band, The GroWiser Band. Both of their children have performed with him since they were four years old. Having served on the Parent Teacher Association of her daughter's first school, Mrs. Ortis is very familiar with the nuts and bolts of annual school fundraising and budgeting to ensure children can get a fantastic education.
