Johanna studied journalism and public relations at the University of Newcastle in New South Wales. She worked at several newspapers before trying her hand at marketing and public relations.
A four-year working holiday in the UK combined Johanna’s love of writing and marketing with travel, and inspired her to start her own business when returning to Australia in 2005. Since then Johanna has become a mum to two beautiful boys, who have added a new dimension to her life – and business – experiences.
Johanna built her freelance work and ability to build relationships and tell a great story into a business and launched Strawberry Communications in 2007. She is also studying a PhD in journalism with the University of Tasmania, investigating how social media texts are used by newspapers as news sources in reporting crisis events.
Johanna published Business & Baby on Board, a guide for entrepreneurial mums, in June 2013 and her eBook, The 21st Century Guide to Promoting Your Small Business, helping small business owners promote themselves in September 2009. Buy your copies on our Books page.
