Hello, my name is Amanda Johnson. I am currently a senior at SOU majoring in communication with a focus on social media and public engagement. I am also getting a minor in business. I am graduating this June! After four, hard years of dedication, I am ecstatic about being done! I strive every day to be the best version of myself and mindful of the world around me.
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart and am a proud auntie and fur mama. I love to read for fun and play old school video games. If the sun is out, I am most likely outside trying to enjoy it. I work two part-time jobs, one as a checker at Sherm’s Food 4 Less in Medford (I have worked here since I was 16.) My second is at Group Eyecare Center in Medford as their social media person, even though I dabble in a lot of their other marketing areas. I have gained some knowledge about strategic social media and using the internet to market for businesses over the last year. I am very excited to learn more about Internet Marketing and E-Commerce.
