Amma Johnson (aka AMMA JO), founder of AMMA JO, LLC, was born and raised in Pennsylvania to immigrant parents from Ghana, West Africa. After a 15 year corporate executive career in retail, non-profit management and government relations, AMMA JO launched her ‘little girls’ dream, tackling the fashion industry. The AMMA JO brand empowers people, especially women to achieve their dreams!
“This has been my lifelong dream,” stated Johnson. “And while I’ve always absolutely LOVED my career, but I felt, heck it’s time to step out and do my dream…it’s now or never! So, I chose NOW! While the brands focus is definitely on fashion, there will always be an underlying theme around encouraging women to dream and excel in business and in life. I’m just getting started and excited to see where this journey leads.”
