Kristin Johnson is a Development Associate with HEAR Wisconsin, a non-profit organization that recently celebrated its 90th anniversary. She is passionate for its mission in eliminating communication and language barriers for people with hearing loss. She was born profoundly deaf and received services as a preschooler from HEAR Wisconsin. Kristin earned her B.A. in International Studies from Valparaiso University and M.A. in Museum Studies from Cooperstown Graduate Program, SUNY. She worked in the museum field for 20 years, including accessibility projects for exhibits and programs to ensure access for all visitors with disabilities. Three years ago, she decided to “give back” by working for HEAR Wisconsin that helped her and her family all those years ago.
