Marge Johnson Business and Programs Manager

Marge joined the team at Fishline after having the joy of participating in the Christmas Child project and viewing the generosity of this community and its neighbors. After many years in private industry, having a purpose and meaning behind the work became an important and driving force in the decision to change careers and join the Fishline organization.

Marge attended both the University of Washington, majoring in Engineering, and South Minnesota State University with a focus on Ag Science and small livestock management.  Born in Washington, her family spent several years on her husband’s family farm in south eastern South Dakota before moving back to the Pacific Northwest. Marge developed and ran an after-school program for children 1st through 9th grade, focusing on creative and critical thinking skills. After raising her family she worked for a local company operating in both the Ports of Seattle and Tacoma as Vice President of Operations and Vice President of Business Process Management prior to retiring from private industry and joining Fishline.

Marge has been married for 27 years, has 4 children and 2 grandchildren.  She enjoys hiking, kayaking, gardening, finding new adventures and spending her spare time with her family.
