Prior to joining the Libertarian Party of California, Johnson earned her Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Fordham University in New York City. At Fordham, she was the Vice-President of the College Republicans, where she witnessed first hand the reality of positions of power abusing their authorities and using censorship to gain political favor when the Cornell College Republicans were expelled from the New York State Federation of College Republicans for endorsing 2016 Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson over Donald Trump. She became a prominent voice for third-party politics, publishing several articles in Fordham's school papers in support of ending the two-party system.

Since 2019, Johnson has worked as a litigation paralegal in Pasadena, CA.

In January 2020, she announced her campaign for At-Large Representative on the LPC Executive Committee, receiving endorsements from the Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County and the Libertarian Party Mises Caucus, and was successfully elected to the Committee at the 2020 Libertarian Party of California Convention.
