The Empowerment Team:

Wendy Johnson is the Founder/President of the National Empowerment Group. Inc. Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin she grew up dreaming big and wanted to make a difference in the community. She was a single parent at the age of 19 and did not know what to do or how to get there. Knowing that things would not be easy; with the support of family and friends, she was able to persevere through the various trials and tribulations of single parenthood.
