Paying it Forward: Brianne Johnson

Volunteer of the WeekbrName: Brianne Johnson

Current employer or place of business: DeWils Industries

Organization(s) I volunteer with: BIA of Clark County

How I got involved: Parade of Homes 2013

Why I give back: Because so often people think someone else will do it. Sometimes you just have to step up and do something yourself.

Proudest moment as a volunteer: Seeing the Chef Hop & Vine, the opening night for the New Homes Tour event, come to fruition last year and being able to give the proceeds to Share House.

What local challenge or issue are you most passionate about: I’ve recently been delving into the plight of our overburdened foster care system. It’s very eye opening and we are hoping to team up with some programs assisting the foster program in Clark County this year.

Just for fun: What are your hidden talents? I’m pretty transparent, so no hidden talents. I can throw a really good party.
