Unveiling her remarkable journey of healing, Johnson has captivated audiences through powerful podcast appearances, riveting talks at college campuses, and compelling speeches at both women’s forums and law enforcement conferences. Her gripping story has even graced the screens of national broadcasts like Fox and Friends and The Glenn Beck Show, while attracting the attention of renowned publications.
