Janae Johnson '21

  • Position: Strategy Analyst at Fortna

Janae graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BSBA in Finance and Business Analytics & Itelligence. Growing up, I always found comfort in data and organization. Now, they are my passions, and I am pursing a Finance and Business Analytics & Intelligence undergraduate degree from Bowling Green State University.

Throughout high school and college, I have incorporated my love for numbers and structure into my everyday life. As Senior Class President in high school, I used metrics and design thinking to plan Homecoming, Prom, and to raise over $13,000 through fundraising. During my three years of college, I analyzed numbers and used forward-thinking through my leadership roles on campus. Furthermore, after completing three internships, I have been able to turn my passions into tangible business skills. Now, as embark on my fourth internship and senior year of college, I am searching for additional opportunities, experiences, and jobs that embody my passion for data and organization.

When I am not at work, crunching numbers, or planning events, I am most likely volunteering at the Cleveland Food Bank, being overly emotional while watching Grey’s Anatomy, enthralled in a Marvel’s production with my family, assisting my scholarship foundation, or playing with my new puppy.
