Friday Fun Facts: GSA Nominee Martha Johnson


On Monday, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is scheduled to vote on the nomination of Martha Johnson to lead the General Services Administration.

In anticipation of the big event — and in celebration of Friday – we bring you some fun facts about Pres. Barack Obama’s pick to lead GSA, as harvested from this lengthy questionnaire released prior to Johnson’s June 3 confirmation hearing.

  • She was born in New Haven, Conn.
  • In the summers of 1967 and 1968 she was a waitress at Sims Café in Dickinson, N.D.
  • She taught English in Taiwan from 1974-1976
  • In 1992, she was an executive recruiting consultant for Ben and Jerry’s Homemade, the company that invented chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.
  • She sings alto.

The questionnaire also contains Johnson’s full resume and her positions on the many challenges facing GSA, so it’s well worth a read.
