Proud to be Staffs Story: Johanna Johnstone

Support Worker | Student and Academic Services


"Jo has been so supportive throughout my time at staffs . I have journeyed through the courses experiencing the loss of both my parents, learning to drive, being a carer of a t1 daughter and experiencing depression and anxiety. Questionioning my abilities when feeling overwhelmed and struggling to stay motivated. Jo has remained by my side supporting me and encouraging my personal and professional development and has helped me to power through life adversities and go on to achieve a bsc and pgdip. I can't thank Jo enough for all the support she's given me and is truly a tremendously valuable member of the Staffordshire University team. Thank you Jo for always believely in me when I struggled to believe in myself "
