Rachel Johnson


I love having a career where I support communities in understanding and adapting to changes in our environment and water resources. Working with the water team at Herrera gives me the opportunity to do just that, from watershed planning to green stormwater infrastructure design to climate adaptation projects. Outside of work, my equation for a great day = outdoor activity (hike, bike, paddle, picnic) + fun companions + tasty snacks.

The Common Loon – their beautiful, haunting call brings back memories of growing up near lakes in Minnesota and spending time in wild places.
