Johanna first began serving on the Middlesex Board in a pro-tem capacity as president of the Middlesex Parents’ Committee from 2019-2021. She has lived every dimension of the boarding school experience: student, faculty, and parent. After graduating from St. Paul’s School, she matriculated at Harvard, where she was two-time captain of the women’s ice hockey team. Johanna hurdled into her school career in 1988 as the consummate “triple threat” at a series of boarding schools, including Fay, St. George’s, Tabor, and Groton, where she taught history, served as a college counselor, coached three varsity sports, and enjoyed the plush benefits of dormitory life. She was recruited to Middlesex to serve as the associate athletic director, run LeBaron Briggs House, and coach field hockey, ice hockey, and lacrosse. Johanna “retired” from the school business after her third child was born and soon launched a residential construction company in Concord, Massachusetts.

She has served in numerous volunteer roles over the years, including as board president of the Children’s Meetinghouse, chair of the Concord-Carlisle Regional School Committee, co-chair of the Friends of Harvard Hockey, president of the Harvard Varsity Club, and member of the Visiting Committee on Athletics at Harvard. Most recently, Johanna purchased and headed up the ownership group of a Montreal franchise in a women’s professional ice hockey team in the Premier Hockey Federation (PHF). The PHF is the only professional women’s ice hockey league in North America, and Johanna and her group, BTM, own and operate four of the teams in the league.
