My name is Britt Johnsen (she/her) and I’m a storyteller, communicator and multidisciplinary creative.

My work has appeared in the Pioneer Press, Star Tribune, Yahoo Finance and nytimes.com. I’ve won more than a dozen awards and honors from the Associated Press, National Society of Professional Journalists and the New York Times Company Foundation, among other organizations.
