As part of a team dedicated to the experiential learning process, Johanna assists students in their professional development pursuits. She firmly believes that a learned experience through "doing," and the ability to communicate learned experience through the written word and graphic detail, portrays a richer story of a student's experiences throughout his or her academic career.

She is an instructor in the BAC Historic Preservation Department focusing on Historic American Building Surveys (HABS) work, notably on the Newburyport Powder House, located in Newburyport, MA.
