Carol Johnson's Picture

Carol Johnson

Carol Johnson is a manufactured home resident in Independence, MO and an MHAction Leader. Carol was born in Kansas and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. As a child, Carol’s parents taught her loyalty, dedication, determination, respect, and fairness. Carol’s draw to activism comes from her parents’ example -- her father unionized the bakery where he worked. Carol raised three children, while working odd jobs. When her children were grown, Carol landed her dream job as a truck driver. She drove semi trucks and trained potential truck drivers, traveling to every state except Hawaii and Alaska. More recently, Carol adopted her biological granddaughter and came to her community looking for the perfect place to raise her family.
