Single...A two-time College National Circuit Finals Rodeo qualifier..Father, Bill Johnson...Got Nellie off the track when she was four and her mother and she trained the horse....As a 6-year-old, Johnson had a friend that was interested in rodeo, so they started doing some local clinics, gymkhana, then progressed to 4-H and on into junior and high school rodeo. It was a passion that started innocently and developed into a life-long love.
