Stephanie Johnson is a photographer, an artist, a content creator, a communications and public relations “nerd”.
A Creative INTJ, she has been enjoying being in the media and communications world since the turn of the century. Starting out as a simple blogger / content creator, she earned her way into a beat position with American Community Newspapers. From there she was able to land a morning drive on-air co-host and News Director job with KLAK FM.
In those early years of writing and broadcasting, she earned many experiences including bits on national sports radio shows. She’s worked with and covered big sport events like the NHL Draft, The Final Four and The Grey Cup in Ontario.
The years of work in KLAK gave her experience in production, voice over work and public speaking and events.
With so much understanding on how media works in many levels, it would only make sense that the road would take her into public relations. First at a boutique agency who handled accounts like Craig Hall and his Hall Office Parks. It was here where she gained insight into agency work and content creation. Her skill set was recognized and she was whisked away to be director of in-house corporate communications for Staffelbach..
Following a year of fighting - and beating - stage 3 breast cancer (2012), Stephanie took much needed time to heal and grow in her skill set. This would include earning a traditional degree (Mass Communications & Digital Art - El Centro College). A believer in never-ending education, she continues to learn and add to her knowledge bank with certifications in topics like Data Science and Color Psychology.
While growing, she has continued to work in multiple capacities including Public Relations. Skilled in media management, Stephanie spent nearly 2 years in working with a high-profile news event, ultimately ending in success.
Her never-ending love of still documentary photography continues. A photojournalist at heart, she’s worked as still photographer for many events and purposes over the years. She’s photographed acts like D’Angelo, Marina and the Diamonds and events such as The Plano Balloon Festival and The Wildflower Festival. She broke into film set work on Kill the Czar - independent film with James Franco that was filmed in Dallas, Texas.
