Beth Johnson

Outreach Coordinator

Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures

Growing up in Bozeman, Montana kindled Beth’s undying appreciation of the majesty and beauty that nature provides. Frequent childhood adventures into the wilderness surrounding her reinforced the idea that wonderful experiences can always be found if one simply keeps exploring. Over the years, the range of these childhood adventures grew, taking Beth from coast to coast in the US and eventually across the Atlantic to Europe.

Beth sought out opportunities to work in ways that benefited local and regional communities. She volunteered during several summers with Redfeather Development Group building strawbale housing on Indian reservations in Montana and North Dakota, then took on the role of Theater Chair on the board of the Sweet Pea Festival, overseeing booking and logistics for all theatrical performances at a three-day, volunteer-run arts festival in Bozeman. 

Beth spent nearly a decade working in animal care, both in a shelter setting and in private veterinary practice, before joining the team at VISIONS. While working in the veterinary field she earned a BA in German Studies with a minor in Japanese studies from Montana State University in Bozeman. She experienced firsthand the immeasurable value of cultural exchange during her time studying abroad in Germany and is thrilled to now be working to help create that same opportunity for young people. 

Outside of the VISIONS office, Beth can be found listening to any number of podcasts, attending local theatre performances, and lounging with pets Butter, Tiny, and Bernard at home.
