Hello! My name is Debra Johnson. I provide training and legal services to professional organizations and small business owners. I enjoy helping managers develop talent in order to improve employee performance and achieve organizational goals.

After graduating from Texas Southern University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a Minor in Speech Communications, I started my career as a middle school teacher. During law school, I transitioned to teaching and training adults as an adjunct faculty member at Houston Community College.

In 2011, I graduated from law school and began working for Houston Independent School District where I became a Professional Standards Analyst, then a Performance and Continuous Improvement Manager. In each role, I advised and trained hundreds of school leaders on employee appraisals, documentation, and policy implementation.

My passion for teaching and training extends to working with professionals and young adults on business issues, personal development, and performance management. Through my company Legal Maven, PLLC, I develop engaging, effective training sessions that help managers lead organizational change.

I’d love to work with you or your company to help you reach your individual and organizational goals.
