britt-johnsen-photoMy name is Britt Johnsen. I’m currently working as a journalist in the Twin Cities metro area, writing all the news I can find. My writing 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.

To read a more detailed list about my accomplishments and positions, please meet me on LinkedIn.

In my free time, I pursue an eclectic mix of interests. I am a certified yoga and meditation teacher, though I’m on a break from teaching. I also love music (for two years I played the washboard in a jug band with my friend and mentor David Hanners; now I maintain his music website that I created). And I can be found cheering on my friends who play with North Star Roller Derby teams.
