I have a Bachelor's of Fine Art from College for Creative Studies and a Master's Degree in Public Administration from U of M - Flint. I worked for eight years in Fenton planning community events and programs and for one year in Flint as the Director of a non-profit art studio.
Upon the birth of my second child, I decided I needed to step away from my professional ambitions for a while and focus on family. As a result I left the world of arts administration and began caring for my 3 year old son and baby girl. After about 9 months of doing the stay-at-home mom thing, it was time to get back to work. Apparently I missed working more than I expected; however, I was not ready to jump into a full-time job. The solution was to start my own business and let it grow as my children grow.
I currently own "KJohnston Presents..." where I provide event planning and graphic design services to local groups, parks & recreations, chamber of commerces, and private businesses. I continue to take the kids to doctor's appointments, soccer classes, and the Linden SKIP program, along with all the other mom duties, but two days a week, I commit myself to my work, my art, and my community through my service to the Lakes Area Arts Council and the Fenton Fund Advisory Board.
