Kristin Lee Johnson grew up in Brookings, South Dakota. She attended college at the University of Minnesota, Morris and graduated with a degree in psychology. She stumbled into a career in social work in Red Wing at Goodhue County Social Services and has been there ever since as a child protection social worker. She loves her job and hopes to someday dispel the myth that all child protection workers do is drag screaming children away from their parents. Kris is married and has four fantastic children who don’t really understand what their mom does all day either.
