Johnny Lester – Retired Police Officer | Plexus Team Member | Wife | Mom | Athlete.
Johnny grew up just outside of Detroit, Michigan. She was an athletic kid with a love for softball and basketball. She was on a travel sponsored team at an early age and played all the way up through college. She landed a scholarship to, but faced some trouble once she got there. Ultimately, she was forced to make some tough decisions. In this episode, Johnny talks about how she was headed down a path that could have been destructive. But she had enough sense, and stubbornness, to leave Michigan for a fresh start in North Carolina. She had plans, but needless to say, things did not go as planned. When she was just getting ready to make her move, tragedy struck her family. But Johnny stayed the course. She was willing to do whatever it took to make something of her life. Johnny’s story is one of triumph over adversity, and we love those stories around here. It certainly has not been easy, but Johnny possesses a little more grit than your average person. She is a tough chick and will kick your ass in the gym. Whatever challenge has been placed in front of her, she has conquered it. We hope you enjoy this episode of Johnny’s life beyond grit.
