Sarai Johnson


I believe in Freedom, Liberation, and Self-Determination. 

Everything I do is about moving toward more freedom and away from oppression. I believe in your right to live the life you are called to live - and I am here to help you do just that.

Whether you are looking to move from Burned Out to In Business, grow your Nonprofit Consultancy, amplify your nonprofit's success, or invest in your personal growth and development as a leader, entrepreneur, and human being living an awesome life I'm here for it.

Let's rock.

In life, leaving is a given. We leave in big ways - relationships, jobs & careers, communities, religions - and we leave in small ways - patterns, ways of thinking, behaviors. But we are trapped by a cultural resistance to quitting. It doesn't have to be that way - and in this talk, I explore what can happen when we choose to honor ourselves and each other by leaving.



Sarai can make the driest shit fun

... I'm an accountant so I might have a warped sense of fun though.

Sarai's Cred

Aside from the fact that I am a delight to be around and good at the stuff I choose to do, I am also credentialed by several bodies that exist for the purpose of credentialing people with fancy things. Here are a few of mine: 

Master of Public Administration // University of Oregon

Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management // University of Oregon

Certified Associate in Project Management (2013-2018) // Project Management Institute

My philosophy in life is that learning is forever. I am always interested in learning and growing, personally and professionally. I invest a lot of time, money, and energy into my own professional development, and my clients benefit greatly from that effort. The above-listed certifications and licensures are most pertinent to my business and work today. 


 Sarai is brilliant, energetic and eloquent.

At the same time, she's deep and earthy, authentic and honest, and generous with her knowledge. Sarai's energy is uplifting and infectious, but still grounded and real. With that combination, how could you possibly go wrong?

Sarai often captures a voice and a tone that's an equal mix of inviting, wise and provocative - something I personally feel the industry needs more of when trying to be better than we were yesterday. This is why when people ask who they should be reading or talking to about strengthening their professional pr organizational growth,

I point them to Sarai from day one.

We need more people like her working to make us all better versions of ourselves.
