Interim Regional Administrator for Region 5

Bolesha Johnson started her child welfare career over 23 years ago with Children’s Administration (now DCYF). Soon after obtaining her MSW in 2004, she served in various supervisory positions. She has served as Accreditation Lead, Policy Implementation Manager, Court Service Manager, Quality Assurance Lead, Area Administrator, and Deputy Regional Administrator.

Bolesha is a natural born leader and extremely committed to positively impacting the lives of children and families in our communities. The core values filtered through her daily exchanges are love and influence. She believes to serve as an agent for child welfare allows an opportunity to restart and refresh families in an intentional and positive way.

One of her favor quotes is by Dr. Brene Brown, "I define a leader as anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes, and who has the courage to develop that potential."
