Kelly Johnson, 45
Adjudicator for Disability Determinations
Charity: Women In Need of the Ozarks
An activist from a young age, Kelly Johnson says she was always concerned with fairness as a child. As an adult, she took this concern for social justice and used it to fuel her work in city government. She served five years on the mayor’s commission for human rights (two of them as chairwoman), has chaired task forces for universal design and employment of offenders, and serves on the NAACP board of directors.
Kelly spent years researching for the sexual orientation and gender identity bill that went to voters earlier this year. She researches issues that people here are facing, and tries to find realistic solutions that help everyone in the community.
While educating the community on issues can be a road filled with setbacks, Kelly says she has learned a lot about her own life from her work experience.
“It has changed my outlook,” she says. “I am more attentive to complexities in ideas. I think it has made me a more patient parent. I’m a little wiser in my personal relationships, and I get to know people more in depth.”
