Bridgeland welcomes lifelong Houstonian Rachel Johnson as its new activities director. Johnson, who was raised in the Cy-Fair area, started work in Bridgeland late January. Her duties include planning community events and coordinating activities, classes and community groups.
“With such an active resident base — we have more than 20 community groups — and facilities for classes, concerts, pool parties and outdoor events, there’s a lot of potential for interesting and innovative activities,” Johnson says.
Johnson previously was special events coordinator for the City of Conroe Parks and Recreation Department. During her three-year tenure, she planned dozens of events, including the popular Conroe Kids Fest, a day of family activities that typically attracts 15,000 attendees. Johnson has several events happening in March, including the Farmers Market at Bridgeland March 10 and a resident-only Easter Egg Hunt and a public BBQ Cook-Off on March 23. The sixth annual Nature Fest takes place April 27.
Johnson has a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a master’s degree in sports and fitness administration, both from the University of Houston. When not planning events, Johnson enjoys cheering the Houston Texans and spending time with her husband and their two dogs.
