Dr. Johnson is an accomplished academician known for her commitment to student learning and the preparation of career-ready graduates. A tireless teacher, mentor, and advisor, her pedagogy extends far beyond the classroom where she motivates students while setting high, yet attainable goals. She challenges students to integrate knowledge to solve problems. Dr. Johnson is not the professor from whom an easy A is received, but is the professor that delivers a challenging course that leaves a student with an earned feeling of accomplishment. Dr. Johnson’s students engage with allied and livestock industries and have a reputation as well-trained and career-ready. She is a valued leader in all areas of our land grant mission. Dr. Johnson’s service to the Animal Sciences Department, Washington State University, ASAS, and other professional and community organizations prove her to be a dedicated team player with a passion for teaching and students.
