In AWE and Inspired by Sarah Johnson

She is a state and national conference speaker around topics of balance, resilience, faith. She is passionate about amplifying and empowering women through the IN AWE Podcast, which she hosts through In AWE, LLC, a business she founded to amplify and empower women. Sarah left a position in a building to seek to teach masses in what she believes is a calling. Her passion for the message of balance and resiliency is the only thing that would have called her away from the daily work with students and staff, and she takes this message seriously. As an educational consultant, Sarah holds an unwavering belief in the importance of the message she shares with participants and readers of her leadership books about seeking balance, building resiliency and transforming within their own lives to be the best leaders they can be at home, work, and life.
