Loving the magic of words since childhood, I seek to bring
the power of possibility thinking into each project I undertake...
Aloha, Jeanne Burrows-Johnson
Can you guess the elements of my personal logo? For many years they were interspersed throughout my work. Delighting in the company of kitties removed one element...design work gave way to...well, yes, the first element in this logo...
This placard presents the Ws of media releases...but it doesn't address the Why and How of the organization offering an event. For decades I have strived to help individuals, entrepreneurs, and the executives of profit and non-profit organizations achieve their personal and professional goals.

Throughout my personal and professional life, wordsmithing has been at the heart of my endeavors. The performing arts, teaching, research, non-fiction, fiction, marketing, public performance and motivational speaking have all required me to expand my abilities to communicate with people of myriad backgrounds.
Sadly, I've never achieved the quality of penmanship desired by my teachers...
