Keela Johnson

Publisher, LKN Magazine

Keela Johnson — the one who started it all. Keela is originally from Winston-Salem, and for 30 years, she called Clemmons home. She is now enjoying (semi-) retirement life at Lake Norman with her husband, Tim, to whom she has been married since 1984. Together, they have two grown children, Brooke Eagle (who recently took over Keela’s position as publisher of Forsyth Woman) and Tanner, who works in technology and lives in Raleigh. Keela founded Forsyth Woman in 2005. Two years later, she launched Forsyth Family with friend and business partner, Robin Bralley. In 2011, she launched Forsyth Woman Engaged! (now known as FW Engaged) and, in 2015, Forsyth Community. Keela loves spending time at the lake with her family, where she’s picked up some new hobbies: paddle boarding, gardening and daily long walks with friends! Keela also loves to spoil her two grand-dogs, Carter and Ranger, and is an avid Carolina Panthers fan. While the magazines will always hold a special place in her heart, Keela loves her quieter life with Tim!
