Biographical Sketch

Dr. Joe Johnson is a former standout college athlete who understands the importance of education and mentoring our youth in as many ways as possible. As a Licensed School Counselor, he has worked in a variety of K-12 school settings but has also done extensive work in higher education serving as a Recruitment & Program Coordinator in the College of Education and an Assistant Director in the Office of Academic Support at the University of Florida. In 2012 he started his company, “Joe Johnson Group” and has quickly become one of the fastest growing speakers and educational consultants in the country. Known around the country as “Joe Johnson Speaks” and the “Student Engagement Technician”, Johnson continues his work with youth in the Midwest and Florida through an organization called Future 4 Teens (F4T), established by him and F4T partners. As the author of the books Pursue Your Purpose Not Your Dreams which focuses on purpose and identity, and The College Kids which is one of the first bilingual books in the country about college for elementary and middle school aged students, Joe Johnson is excited to spread his message of self-esteem, versatility, and college and career readiness to the world. Completing his PhD in Counselor Education & Supervision from the University of Florida in May 2016, these experiences and opportunities give Johnson the platform to consistently help others develop personally, academically, and professionally while continuing to keep up the fight for social justice.
