Serving Strathcona Since: 2016 – Present
As Manager, Communications & Sustainability at the SBIA, Johanna develops sustainability, marketing, and public realm programming as it relates to the diverse business membership and community in Strathcona. She leads the organization’s communications strategies and enjoys developing content for all of the SBIA’s external and internal member communications. One of her favourite projects to date has been working on the refreshed placebrand for Strathcona. Community and member engagement is at the heart of all Johanna’s work at the Strathcona BIA. Whether it’s striking working groups, convening diverse groups in the community, or stopping in to talk with members at their businesses, Johanna enjoys puting relationship-building into practice everyday at the SBIA. She is an avid foodie and has worked as a culinary and city tour guide with Vancouver Foodie Tours. Johanna is also part of the Granville Island Council, a newly formed local governing body, in a volunteer capacity.
