Lanette Johnson is a HBCU graduate from Virginian Union University with 10+ years experience in the education field, ranging from preschool to kindergarten. Lanette’s most recent job was at the Boston Renaissance Charter School in Hyde Park. Lanette is currently serving her fellowship at Dorchester Bay through the Fellowship for Equitable Affordable Housing Development, a two-year program from Urban Edge, The Neighborhood Developers, and OppCo designed to bring more People of Color into the field of affordable housing development. In her free time, she likes to spend time with my family, especially her daughter. She loves plants and likes to cook. She also started a small juice business this year.
“I believe everyone deserves to have a place to call home and the affordable housing developments will help eliminate those housing insecurities. This fellowship is breaking barriers and giving women or color an opportunity to make a change and I am grateful to be an inaugural member of such an amazing opportunity.”
