29 Mar Jovan Johnson
Jovan is a book and science loving, all around nerd with an eclectic taste in stories, film and music. She recognized early on that her love of tree diagrams and grammatical rules made her the life of any party!
While dedicating her college years to earning her B.S. in biology and working predominantly in the cancer research field, her love of literature and immersing herself in what Stephen King referred to as the “uniquely portable magic” of books never waned. This love, coupled with her *slightly* perfectionist personality and the dedication to accuracy, precision and efficiency honed in the laboratory, soon translated into an acute awareness of and desire to fix flaws she detected in audiobooks. When the opportunity arose to translate that desire into the actionable ability to offer narrators the possibility of creating audiobooks that are as near to pristine as possible, she quickly jumped at the chance.
In her spare time, Jovan volunteers, takes an assortment of classes to learn new things (from software programming to music theory), reviews books for websites like Joyfully Jay, and of course, spends as much time as possible in her safe haven—that repository of the human condition which has the power to enlighten, energize, and encourage. . .books.
