Mrs. Johnson, a Reno native and graduate of Reno High School, pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Computer Science from the University of Oregon.

Both her sons have completed their education—one from the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), and the other from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). Notably, due to COVID, one of her sons has recently relocated to Reno and is now employed at Brookfield School.
In expressing her perspective on education, Mrs. Johnson firmly believes it stands as one of the most fulfilling vocations, particularly within the framework of the family-owned and women-operated Brookfield School. Mrs. Johnson articulated, “I feel education to be among the most rewarding professions.”
Away from her professional pursuits, Mrs. Johnson finds solace in sailing aboard their ocean-going 46’ sailboat, presently stationed in the San Francisco Bay. Her sailing adventures have taken her to various destinations: four years in Mexico, a summer in Alaska in 2018, three years in Canada, including visits to the Islands of Haida Gwaii and Vancouver Island’s west shore in 2017. These journeys offered encounters with diverse wildlife like bears, wolves, orcas, and even witnessing whales up close alongside their boat. Fishing, crabbing, and catching prawns are among the activities enjoyed during these excursions. Additionally, she engages in SCUBA diving off the boat, expressing a fondness for SCUBA diving, snorkeling, skiing, hiking, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), camping, geocaching, and of course, sailing.
