My Message

Hello everyone! My name is Jackie Johnson and I am delighted to serve as the Director of People and Culture (HR) for Sun Valley Academy.  The Office of People and Culture focuses on the success of our employees and is responsible for talent acquisition, employee relations, development and implementation of policies and procedures, training, diversity and inclusion, employee benefits, and working on a variety of projects with our talented and dedicated team. My experience includes an extensive career in local government, working in the nonprofit sector, and serving in an executive capacity in higher education. I also have a certificate in Diversity and Inclusion from Cornell University.  I am a firm believer that everyone should have access to a quality and affordable education, especially children.  On a personal note, I am an avid football fan and a published author who thoroughly enjoys writing poetry and short stories, public speaking, and mentoring youth. I am honored to be a member of this dynamic team and I am committed to advancing the mission, vision and values of Sun Valley Academy!
