Michelle Laque Johnson
Michelle Laque Johnson is a fully professed Secular Carmelite with more than 30 years of journalism and communications experience. She currently serves as Director of Communications for EWTN, the largest religious media network in the world. Michelle was married to Stuart Johnson for 35 years, before he died of cancer. Stu suffered through three bouts of cancer over eight years, had his leg amputated up to the hip, and became a quadriplegic. For all but the last few months, when she could not lift him, Michelle was his sole caregiver even as she worked a full-time job. In addition to her husband, Michelle has also experienced the sudden death of her father and her beloved sister’s death from cancer, and is assisted with the caregiving of her recently deceased 93-year-old mother, who experienced both physical and mental challenges. Michelle holds a Master’s in Journalism from Northwestern University and a Master’s in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from San Diego State.
