Learning and Knowledge Management

Leah Jones joined The Ford Family Foundation in 2022 as the Administrative Associate for Learning and Knowledge Management. She supports communications, events and department projects such as Oregon by the Numbers. Leah’s prior work experience includes the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Hawaii and Rasmuson Foundation in Anchorage, Alaska.

With roots in a small Kansas farming community, Leah’s problem-solving, communication and hospitality skills come naturally to her. “I grew up in a town where everyone knows everyone. When there’s a community need, people pitch in to get it done and they take care of each other.”

Leah holds a human ecology degree from Kansas State University with a strong focus on hospitality management. Leah’s goal is to always put people first and provide excellent customer service in all that she does.

In her spare time, Leah enjoys spending time with her family, which includes her husband, son and dog. They especially enjoy being outdoors, exploring beautiful Oregon and traveling. She is a board member of Saving Grace Pet Adoption Center and a member of the Roseburg Economic Development Commission.
