Meet the Crew
A passionate writer and educator, Jana Johnson spent 19 years as an elementary teacher. Every day, she shared her love of learning with her students, imparting her knowledge while also gaining invaluable life lessons in return. Last year, she decided to explore options outside the classroom, accepting a position to help build a small business, and taking more time to focus on her writing. And as the resident travel planner in her family, Golden Shovel was a perfect fit! When she isn't attending basketball games and gymnastics meets with her husband and two children, she enjoys reading, running, and spending time outdoors.
