Fueled by a desire to spread the message of empowerment that comes from personal choices and attitudes, Melissa Johnson is a writer who travels and a traveler who writes. Melissa is a mother of three, a business owner and an eternal optimist. She speaks to school districts, corporations, non-profits and civic organizations about living life with passion and purpose.
Her background lies in media and communications and she has delivered keynotes and workshops for the Jon Gordon Companies for over 6 years. Melissa engages her audiences with authenticity, proven leadership strategies, inspiring personal stories and a little laid-back humor. She considers determination, a relentless desire to serve others, and unshakable optimism among her greatest gifts.
"I simply want to leave this world a better place than it was when I got here. I have a lot of work to do before I go."
