Jeanie Johnson came aboard the Grand County Rural Health Network staff in August as our new Administrative Assistant. In a short amount of time, she has proven to be a valuable member of our team. We are thrilled to have Jeanie on our team and excited that we were able to extend the seasonal Administrative Assistant position into a year-round position. Please join us in welcoming her!
Born in southern Oregon, Jeanie spent summers following first and second grade on a fire lookout tower with her mom and sister. Before going up onto the mountain, her mother took the girls to the county public library where the librarian encouraged the girls to select a grocery bag full of books each. Jeanie is sure that the seeds of love of literature, reading, libraries, and mountains were planted at that time. After moving to Oklahoma, Jeanie grew up, taught school, earned her Master of Library Sciences degree, and worked as a librarian in many settings. In 2014, she and her husband moved to Granby, where she enjoyed 3.5 years working with Grand County Library District. Moving back to Oklahoma in 2018, they began building a new home during the summers in Hot Sulphur Springs.
In August 2021, Jeanie joined the Grand County Rural Health Network team as an administrative assistant. Since then, she has supported many projects for the Network, including the virtual fundraiser, Gratitude for Grand: Give a High Five for Health. Loving to read, quilt, and sew, she especially enjoys spending time outdoors walking and hiking.
