Jean Marie Johnson


Jean Marie Johnson is the first to say that she entered this life “with an inquisitive mind, a mush-melon heart, a significant degree of sass and a passion for all things beautiful.” She secured her first full time summer job at the age of twelve as a babysitter, sold Avon and babysat throughout high school, won a scholarship to a commuter college and tutored and worked in the placement office for extra cash. In the ensuing decades, Jean Marie travelled extensively, both domestically, and abroad, supporting organizations in their quest to enhance the employee and customer experience.  Over time, she evolved as a writer, speaker and provocateur, channeling years of life experience to support women on their journeys to embrace and express the person they were born to be. While continuing her work as an organizational learning strategist and writer, Jean Marie also writes about the joys and challenges of cultivating an authentic, “perfectly-imperfect” life. Jean Marie holds a BA in Social Work and an MS in Human Resource Development and Counseling. In her spare time, she can be found walking, tending her herb garden, feeding her backyard birds, hunting for great finds and always cultivating the beauty and the raw authenticity around her.
