Elaine Gonzalez Johnson
Elaine Gonzalez Johnson is a visionary, educator and entrepreneur. Elaine is best known for her role as the Founder and Executive Director of Latinas in Motion- a national organization created to encourage women of color to get active. Elaine inspires and empowers women across the world to exercise and adopt healthy habits. This self-proclaimed “Mogul Mami”, is an all-around inspiration—as much for her contagious energy as her willingness to break stereotypes.
In 2017, Elaine created a tool to help women dream out loud: “Plan, Pray, Slay- The Planner”. This is not an ordinary planner; this fully functional tool was created to help dreamers execute a plan for whole life success. Elaine has sold over 3,000 copies worldwide.
Elaine is passionate about sharing her story with others. Elaine’s down-to-earth personality and frequent pop-culture references have established her as a sought after speaker. On November 29, 2018, Elaine was selected to share her mission statement at the (sold out) Michelle Obama “Becoming” event. It’s safe to say, this is only the beginning.
Most recently, Elaine launched the Mogul Mami Podcast (available on Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, iHeartRadio, Spotify and Spreaker). She uses this platform to discuss all things faith, family and fitness. Within 9 short months, Elaine reached 10,000 downloads on her channel. She continues to empower her community to lead with love and work in purpose.
Elaine Johnson has a Masters of Science in Higher Education from Drexel University and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from Bloomsburg University. Elaine is a Philadelphia native, currently residing in the city with her beloved husband Darryl, daughter Eva and son Ian.
