Most recognizable as a former News reporter and anchor for CBS and Fox News affiliates, Johnson has worked in the television, commercial, and film industry since the start of her working career. After experiencing an out-of-the-blue and knee-bending spiritual awakening in her living room however, Johnson was divinely led to use her “gifts and charisms” solely for the Lord — a calling she could not (and dared not) ignore.
Johnson left a budding television news career and completed a Master’s of Sacred Theology degree from St. Joseph’s College of Maine and is currently pursuing a Doctorate from the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. Johnson works full-time for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis as the Director of Pastoral Care and Director of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). In addition, Johnson is currently working on a book about her own mystifying conversion experience as well as on her academic areas of interest such as the importance of knowing our sacred history, theology and Church, the art of Spiritual direction, and the pursuit of holiness in our everyday lives.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, Johnson co-founded Psalm91.com, a website dedicated to strengthening one’s faith through daily meditation on the Psalms, Holy Scripture, traditional prayer, and God’s Truth.
