Cindy Johnson, Board Member & Marketing Director
Throughout my career, I have held positions and owned companies centered around business computing, finance, and marketing. I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Business Administration, and went to work for Electronic Data Systems. Through my employment with EDS, I was assigned to General Motors. There I was a customer service liaison, and one of the key personnel in charge of the implementation of (what was then) the largest accounts payable system in the United States, if not the world. I travelled extensively for many years, and desired to be more centrally located, so I left the business world and became a realtor. In my first year, I joined the President’s Club in the top 5% of all realtors in my area. I later transitioned to mortgage lending, and enjoyed a career in the real estate industry for over 25 years. I am currently the owner and manager of Expanded Vision Marketing, which my husband and I established in 2005, and I am also an owner/partner of On-Target SEO. Through these entities, I have helped many companies develop websites and build a presence on the internet.
I look forward to my association with Step Up Movement. I was approached by Kathy and Donna to assist with the development of their website and immediately agreed. I know there is a need in today’s society for the work that Step Up is doing, and I have always had a heart for young people. My own children are between the ages of 18 and 25, and we have been actively involved in helping them find “their purpose” along with a position in life that they can be passionate about. I believe if you find something that you are good at and love to do, you will never work another day in your life. Sadly, many young people today don’t have someone to help them make these BIG decisions, and find themselves following the path that is convenient, but maybe not the best for their future. So, I am excited about the part I can play in helping other young people discover their niche in life, finding success, happiness and satisfaction along the way.
