“For the younger generation, I am an example of what they can become and for the older generation, I am an example of how far we have come."

"HBCU made,” residency trained optometrist in ocular disease. Dr. Johnson graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University in 2010. 

Inside and outside of the office, Dr. Johnson is committed to serving as a mentor, preceptor, facilitator and speaker and inspiring girls and women in every phase of education to visualize their goals and reach their potential.


For her, patient education isn’t limited to the ocular conditions a person may have but also in sharing the experiences that influenced that once middle school girl who was introduced to S.T.E.M. by her 6th grade math teacher to be inspired to become the professional career woman, wife and mother practicing and preaching optometry while serving and impacting her community in english and spanish.

Dr. Johnson is redefining the color of the eyecare industry through advocacy, action and accountability (13% promise).
