Johnson, a marketing professor at the University of Houston-Downtown's College of Business, was practicing law when a client suggested she try teaching instead. In 1983, she joined the UHD staff as an assistant professor of business law and seven years later she decided to go back to school for a doctorate degree in marketing.
Today, Johnson teaches marketing strategy and electronic marketing to UHD students and serves as the assistant chair for the Department of Management, Marketing and Business Administration.
To accomplish this, Johnson engages her students in challenging class projects that require a lot of hard work. She partners with an educational vendor that matches her advanced marketing classes with corporations or organizations looking for marketing support. Past clients have included Honda and the Federal Bureau of Investigations. Students work together to create marketing plans, work within deadlines and learn about client relations.
