Prior to joining the Woodfin administration, Johnson practiced law and served as director of policy for the Westside Justice Center in Chicago. He also worked previously as executive director of the Washington Park Consortium, a principal with Catalyst Global Strategies, a senior consultant at Flinn Consultants, and a project manager for "Reconnecting Neighborhoods" with the Metropolitan Planning Council. He has also served as a policy analyst in the Illinois General Assembly.
