From there, Johanna went on to obtain her undergraduate degree in psychology from Eastern Oregon University then skipped over the pond to get her Master’s degree in Health Psychology from City University London in the UK. Along with her unusual educational experiences, Johanna has also worked, or volunteered, in almost every aspect of the social and human services fields; making her a wealth of resources for our kiddos and their family members of all ages.
