Michelle Johannes, President
Michelle Johannes is the founder of MJ Communication. She has an extensive background in writing, producing, social media management, event planning, public relations and keeping high-end customers happy. But what she really loves is her family and her friends. Everything she does is for them. When you're her client she treats you as her friend. She's fiercely loyal and will do whatever it takes to make sure her clients, her friends, are taken care of.
Prior to starting her own company, she was the Membership and Marketing Director at Rogue Valley Country Club, the Marketing and Promotions Manager for KEZI-TV and the Small Market Representative for the ABC Affiliate Group representing 100 small markets to ABC News and ABC Entertainment.
Michelle grew up in Medford and graduated with a Journalism and Communication degree from the University of Oregon. She is married to Glenn who is a teacher. They have three young boys who are always on the move and are the center of their universe.
A detail-oriented person by nature, Reena believes the smallest detail can change the look, feel, delivery and bring life to an event or project. She prides herself on remembering random facts about people and feels this allows for a more personal connection with individuals and businesses.
When she's not planning events, organizing schedules or assisting her sister (who happens to be Michelle Johannes) in projects, you can find her running, not walking, after her 3 busy boys and trying to squeeze a round of golf in with her husband, Jimmy.
According to Bryn, letting her creative juices flow gives her life! At MJ, we are happy to help her find what inspires her.

Bryn is passionate about searching out, and soaking up, the beauty of the world. She pulls inspiration from wherever her travels take her.
Rebecca loves to write. It doesn't matter if it's a blog, article, website or social media content for businesses and magazines- she does it all. She has a background in marketing, digital advertising, social media and writing. Her passion is writing unique, quality content, and bringing experiences to life on the page. If not working, you'll find her reading a good book while sipping her favorite cup of tea.
Bridgette has a passion for words. While she started with a love for writing poetry and fiction, she found enjoyment in developing the craft for non-fiction writing and graduated from Arizona State University with a Technical Writing degree. Bridgette is also competitive with herself, always wanting to be the best that she can be. This trait has given her a knack for persuasive writing, and she hopes to get into grant writing someday, where she can persuade her way into the hearts of funders. She works from home, and often has to balance her laptop on her knees as her special needs cat, Little Man, is usually curled up in her lap.

Post-graduation, she worked as a reporter and freelancer with news outlets in Eugene, Roseburg and Cottage Grove. If not behind her computer, you'll find Madi listening to murder mystery audiobooks to keep her company on long runs, playing volleyball with her city league team or on a solo trip to the movie theater.
