TRICIA JOHNSON - Executive Director

Tricia was born and raised here in Grass Valley. She graduated from Nevada Union High School then went on to Sierra College and Point Loma Nazarene University, majoring in Child Development. In 1993 Tricia married Steve Johnson, also from Grass Valley. Together they have 3 sons, Calvin, Trevor and Sam. 


Supported by Steve, Tricia lived her dream of being a stay-at-home mom, while spending extra time serving in Church and other Christian ministries. Prior to becoming the Executive Director of Anew Day, Tricia served as a Teaching Leader for Bible Study Fellowship International (BSF), a global organization of in-depth Bible Classes. For 10 years Tricia taught and directed the Grass Valley BSF women’s class, which grew to 220 women and 115 children under her leadership. 


Christian ministry and community service have always characterized Tricia’s family. Her parents Jim and Anita Mills worked in the school system and were prominent youth ministers in Nevada County.  Both her brothers, Scott and Ben Mills are teachers, coaches and youth ministers here as well.  Her husband Steve Johnson is Deputy Chief of the Grass Valley Police department and all 3 of their sons serve as staff members of local youth ministries. Tricia also has a heart for her community and feels called by God to reflect His love and to help people find hope and healing in the midst of their circumstances.

JULIE BOUSFIELD - Lay Counseling Supervisor

Julie was born in the Bay Area and spent most of her growing up years there and in San Luis Obispo. She moved to Santa Rosa to attend nursing school and work as an RN prior to marrying her husband Jeff. In 2000, they moved back to Nevada County where Jeff was born and raised. They now live on property his grandparents homesteaded in 1911 and it definitely feels like home.


Jeff and Julie have eight grown children and six grandchildren. Julie had the joy of homeschooling their children for 31 years. During that time she also had the privilege of being a 4-H leader, Bible Drill teacher, teacher at The Learning Center Homeschool Co-op, and serving in her church. One of Julie’s passions is that no one should have to walk through pain and suffering alone. At Anew Day she is able to provide that opportunity for our clients by supporting and encouraging our dedicated team of lay counselors as well as by being a lay counselor herself.


JENNY WOODALL - Office Manager

Jenny was raised in the Bay Area as well as northern England, where her family lived for 7 years where her dad was transferred for work. While attending California Baptist University in Riverside, California, she met and married her husband. They lived in Riverside until 2013, when they moved the family to Grass Valley.


Jenny and her husband have been married since 1996 and have four kids. Jenny spent 21 years as a busy stay-home mom. She has always loved being the hands and feet of Christ, glad to meet needs He brings to her attention. Homeschooling for 16 years provided the ability to make ministering to others a core family value; whether it was through organized activities and events, or meeting needs of individuals they came across. 


The Woodalls have been very involved in 4H/FFA and their local church, with many volunteering duties and jobs (and animals!) along the way. Jenny enjoys caring for her mini-farm critters, cooking, baking, and canning.


This is Jenny’s first jump back into the workforce since her eldest was born. Previously she worked in various office positions; most recently as an Office Manager for a Southern California foster care agency. Jenny is excited to join the ministry of Anew Day and work in such a close-knit office. She enjoys doing her part to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere for clients, counselors, and therapists, while assisting Tricia and making sure the office is running smoothly.
