As we look deep into our special guest Kathy Johanson, we find she is an experienced Chief Executive Officer with a demonstrated history of working in the education management industry, medical device, property management, aerospace, and wine businesses.
Kathy is an Independent Wine Consultant at Scout and Cellar with 34 years of corporate and entrepreneurial experience. She has been recognized and honored as an Innovator, Educator, and Philanthropist. Her goals have always encompassed support and positive change for pressing women’s issues whether it is health and well-being, education, or mentorship.
She served as the owner, and co-founder of O Wines Winery where she and her business partner started The Opportunity for Success Scholarship Foundation, a scholarship established to fund educational scholarships for underserved females desiring higher education in the Western US. 95% of the students receiving these scholarships were the first in their extended families to get the opportunity to go to college.
Kathy gets her inspiration from leaders like Gandhi who said: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” She believes her philanthropic efforts have the potential to change lives daily. The key is making the extraordinary effort of time and hard work not for self but for others.
