Employee Spotlight – Johanna Rogers
This month’s employee spotlight is on the amazing Johanna Rogers. She is the Learning and Development Specialist and has been with Engage fi now for a little over a year. Johanna helps define and develop programs using various applications and documentation tools to foster and grow Engage fi through education and professional development. Johanna’s favorite thing about working at Engage fi is the culture and collaborative spirit. She is always positive and a cheerleader for everyone on the team, willing to help anyone at any time!
Johanna grew up in a small German town outside San Antonio, TX. However, she was born in Mobile, AL, and would still visit quite often, and now is where she permanently resides. Johanna loves everything about Mobile, especially that it is very family-oriented, and there is always something fun her family can do together. She cherishes all the time spent with her family, especially her daughter.
Outside the office, Johanna enjoys adventures with friends and family, reading, museums, and being a momma. Her favorite vacation she has taken was to Italy and Greece with her stepdaughter when she graduated high school. Johanna loves to experience all kinds of different cultures through cuisine. If she had to pick one food to live off for the rest of her life, it would be NYC pizza. In her free time, you will find Johanna reading a book outside or enjoying her guilty pleasure of super dark chocolate and a glass of good red wine.
