Your writer and collaborator
Rebecca Jantz Johnson
Over three decades serving more than 70 organizations, Rebecca has been helping leaders and changemakers give their values a stronger voice. In 2015, she put a name to what she's been creating throughout her career: Story Solutions.
Her professional backstory begins with serving in donor development for two great Windy City institutions: the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Lincoln Park Zoo. She helped community leaders craft their clout into messages that called for action and support.
Meanwhile, she landed a contract with Word Publishing (now W Publishing Group under Thomas Nelson) for a collection of readers' theater scripts. This marked her first milestone as an independent writer. Although she fulfilled two additional commissioned publishing contracts, she prefers helping others find words for their stories.
Her next move pointed west to Denver. Rebecca established and directed the communications team and eventually became an executive leader at Cherry Hills Community Church.
Then, as an agency vice president at Cahoots Communications, she helped build dozens of nonprofit brands — notably as a magazine and anthology editor, working with publishers such as David C Cook, Harvard Business, InterVarsity Press, Waterbrook & Multnomah, and Zondervan to connect authors with readers.
Rebecca went on to join the leadership cabinet at Valor Christian High School, where she aligned and strengthened its branding, marketing, admissions, communications, and key community programs.
Today, through Story Solutions, she continues to serve organizations as a writer, brand thinker, and source for leadership development and executive counsel.
