Jasmine Johnson

Jasmine Johnson joined the Echo Press staff in May 2020 as a general assignment reporter. She grew up in Becker, Minn., and later studied journalism and graphic design at Bethel University in Arden Hills, Minn.

Johnson interned at ECHO Global Farm in Fort Myers, Fla., and the St. Paul Pioneer Press before starting at the Echo Press. From writing for a nonprofit’s donor magazine to producing breaking news stories for a daily newspaper, Johnson appreciated the variety of pace and content that came with both positions, which is why she was drawn to her current role.

Whether covering city council meetings or writing profiles, researching building history pieces or sharing personal columns, she welcomes each new story idea as an opportunity to learn more about the personalities, businesses and history that make up Douglas County.
