Meet Amoena Ambassador Ginger Johnson

We love these ladies! Here’s the third Amoena Ambassador (alphabetically speaking): Ginger Johnson, 38, from Layton, Utah.

amoena ambassador Ginger JohnsonAmoena: What was your first reaction when you knew you were a finalist?
Ginger: I was really excited and happy!

Amoena: Who supports you the most?
Ginger: God, my husband, my children – in that order. God has always been there for me to give me strength and wisdom when I felt alone and my husband, Travis, has always had my back, even when I lost my front (wink). We’ve been married for 15 years in May and I can honestly say that getting married to him was the best decision of my life. At the risk of sounding corny – he completes me. LOL. We’ve been through so much together and even with our disagreements and days when I’m frustrated beyond belief, I still know that together we can achieve so much more than if we were apart.

Amoena: Just for fun, what’s your favorite meal?
Ginger: That’s a hard one. I like a variety of foods from all over the world – but I guess my favorite meal would be my husband’s homemade chicken enchiladas. YUM. They make my mouth water.

Amoena: How about your favorite TV show?
Ginger: I don’t watch much TV because of my schedule but I do like to watch Jimmy Fallon at night when I get the chance. I think the way he’s combined the late night talk show format with short skits that remind me of the old Saturday Night Live is absolutely genius – and fun to watch.

Amoena: The most recent book you read?
Ginger: The last book I read was Insurgent – the 2nd book in the Divergent series. I read it in about 5 hours one Saturday (525 pages) when I needed a break. Sometimes it’s good to just let your mind escape from a busy schedule and I tend to get lost in books that relate to human behavior and personalities. The book before that was Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain. Again, a book on human behavior. I love learning about what makes people tick, why we think the way we do and how to best honor people in their uniqueness – because I truly believe that everyone has a divine birthright of being awesome.

Amoena: What do you do to relax?
Ginger: Read, go on a walk, sleep and get outside in nature. I love to backpack with my family and we’ve been on several backpacking trips over the years. Last year we hiked 17 miles in The Narrows in Zion National Park and 15 miles in Coyote Gulch in central Utah.  Backpacking may not sound very relaxing – but when you get away from the noise of the world and have time to just be in nature without cell phones, computers, etc – it can be very relaxing.

Amoena: What do you most look forward to about working with us?
Ginger: I’ve wanted to work with the Amoena team for a long time because I feel that the corporation and brand is truly focused on improving women’s lives and that is a focus of mine as well.
