As a child, Johanna always wanted to know what was happening in the world around her. She asked lots of questions and told many stories – and hasn’t stopped!
Johanna studied journalism and public relations at the University of Newcastle. She returned to study as a mature-age Journalism honours student at the University of Tasmania. Johanna has worked as a journalist at newspapers in Australia and the United Kingdom. Her experience also spans marketing and public relations for SMEs, now handling media for an Australian senator.
Johanna built her storytelling experience into Strawberry Communications. She also researched a PhD in journalism with the University of Tasmania. This project investigated how social media texts were used by newspapers as news sources in reporting crisis events.
