Area Sales Manager, Mountain States

DJ Johnson, Market Sales Manager, Mountain StatesBorn in East London and being raised in North London, I came to the U.S. initially in 1990 to experience another country and culture. I travelled for a year with my base being in Florida. Had so much Fun!

I loved the U.S. so much I came back on an Au-Pair program in 1995 to Cincinnati, Ohio. After my Au-Pair program ended, I went back to school and discovered a love for wine while serving as a waitress in a very busy local restaurant and very much appreciated the education side with staff-trainings.

After getting into the distribution side in 1996, I met my husband who was at the time opening restaurants. After we were married, we moved to Chicago at the end of 2001, I helped build Cream Wine Company where I made lifetime friendships.

We relocated to Colorado in 2012 for my husband, Jason to start his own brewery – Living the Dream Brewing! I joined Beverage Distributors as a specialist.

We have 2 boys, Teddy and Charlie and love the fun outdoorsy stuff that Colorado has to offer. I am an avid runner but as a family, we enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, and snowboarding. We love entertaining friends and introducing them to great wines from around the world when the opportunity presents itself.
