Dr. Johnson is a born and raised Texan and lived there her whole life until recently moving to Georgia. She's been fascinated by criminals since a young age by watching Unsolved Mysteries with her mom. She decided to double major in Criminal Justice and Sociology at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, TX and earned her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. Dr. Johnson decided she wanted to delve deeper into understanding human behavior and was accepted into the master's program in Sociology at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX and subsequently earned her Master’s degree in Sociology with a specialization in criminology and homicide. By this time, Dr. Johnson knew that earning a PhD was for her so she applied and was accepted into UNT's Sociology PhD program and specialized in family violence, criminological theory, and homicide. It was during this time that Dr. Johnson discovered she had a passion for teaching and knew she wanted to become a professor.

Perhaps something interesting about her is that she teaches for a study abroad program through Midwestern State University where they take students to London for a month in the summer! Dr. Johnson will also teach for the China study abroad program here at Dalton State in May 2014. Fitting right in line with her studies, Dr. Johnson loves to watch the Showtime TV show, Dexter. Her other main interest lies in traveling the world. So far, she has traveled to England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Egypt, Turkey, Greece, the Czech Republic, France, the Dominican Republic, and several U.S. states and hopes to continue adding to the list!
