At the Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge spanning Worcester and Shrewsbury at 40 Under Forty winners (from left) Maryann C. Johnson, Ryan A. Wagner, Dr. Milka Njoroge, PharmD. and Asmar N. Akman.

Johnson oversees fundraising, marketing and strategic planning at Oak Hill and developed a diversified fundraising plan using Community Investment Tax Credits – a gift-matching program raising $800,000 in new funding. Ultimately, Johnson finds community needs and pairs them with programming to make the community a better place to live, work and play. Last fall, Johnson completed the national Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program and used her knowledge to assist Oak Hill in developing a sustainability plan.

She serves on the Canal District Alliance board. Her and husband, Rob, have twin daughters, Ashley and Claire.

How do you define success? Making a positive difference in our community.

What would the message be if you spoke at a college graduation? Whatever you decide to do, make sure it becomes your passion.

What movie actress would play you? Nicole Kidman. She is a triple threat: singing, dancing, acting. And she has red hair.
