Director of Grants Management 

In her current role as director of grants management, Johnson identifies new funding opportunities and working with faculty, staff, and administrators to design, submit, and secure successful grants in many different disciplines.

Johnson also has many achievement that should be mentioned such as: a recent nomination as a Marian University Global Citizen, was a Peace Corps Volunteer in China where she taught English, and a Fulbright Scholar in Xinjiang, China.

Before coming to Marian University:

Johnson was the grant writer in the Center for International Development at Ball State University where she secured grants from the Department of State for projects based in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan.
Johnson also is a proud Seminole from Florida State University where she majored in Asian Studies and Chinese in her Undergraduate degree, while later attending Clarke University where she majored in International Development and Social Change for her graduate degree. 

In her spare time Johnson enjoys watching action movies and hanging out with friends. A fun fact about Johnson is that she bought herself a manual car and taught herself how to drive it.
