Denise Farrell
DENISE FARRELL
President
 
Denise has lived in Johnson Ranch for nearly twelve years and loves her neighbors, neighborhood, Arizona weather, and home (plus the relatively low property taxes here in Pinal County). As a board member, she strives to ensure accountability to homeowners from the board and management team, maintain property values, and refine the Association's communications. Denise has previously served on the Volunteer Workforce Committee and Nominating Committee and loves the opportunity to make a difference in her community.
 
Before committing herself to the Johnson Ranch Board of Directors, Denise has worked with the Pinal County Public Health Services District and for the Pennsylvania Department of Education. She loves to crochet, golf, play pickleball, and line dance — oh, and she adores her four-legged best friend, Murphy.
Deborah Grett
DEBORAH GRETT
Secretary
 
Deb has lived in Johnson Ranch for more than two decades and loves all of the wonderful people she has met here. She loves all of the wonderful things our community offers, including the common areas and open spaces. Deb is excited to be more involved as a board member and hopes to help increase homeowner participation in the community, improve resident communication, and ensure that Johnson Ranch is a safe, fun place for everyone. She is specifically interested in taking care of our existing amenities and adding amenities as finances allow.
 
At home, Deb has two dogs — Sasha and Lexi. She adopted Sasha while working from home during the pandemic and fostered her seven puppies until they were adopted out, but she had to keep at least one (that's Lexi).
Marsha Ard
MARSHA ARD
Treasurer
 
Marsha moved to Johnson Ranch five years ago. She loves being part of such a large community where so many talented people come together to achieve our vision "To be recognized by the residents as an outstanding place to live." This vision is precisely why Marsha serves on the board, to represent homeowners, maintain amenities and common areas, provide engaging activities, promote strong financial practices, and strengthen the sense of community.
 
Outside of Johnson Ranch, Marsha serves as the chairperson for the Oregon City Rose Farm, one of the oldest pioneer homes in Oregon, where the Oregon Territory was formed. She loves seeing this farm beautified and improved as she does Johnson Ranch.
