“The work I’m best known for and most proud of is trade-facing events focused on education, networking and community building,” says Johnson. She is not only CEO of Lush Life Productions, but also co-founded Portland Cocktail Week, which now has a business school of sorts for bartenders called Bar Institute, and started Camp Runamok, a sleep-away camp in the heart of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail for prospective bar stars. “During the day, our campers learn about whiskey production, and at night, we do team-building activities and establish lifelong friendships, including one marriage,” she says.
