Dr. Cynthia Johnson enjoys spending time with friends and family. She has a passion for the outdoors, including hiking, bicycling, skiing, snowshoeing, and taking long walks. One fun fact about Dr. Johnson is that she previously helped teach over one million children learn to read as a producer of The Reader Rabbit Series of educational software products. If Cynthia could only eat one meal the rest of her life, it would be, linguine with pesto and a ton of veggies…or anything chocolate!!
