Marie F. Johnson, PhD. – Financial/Treatment Coordinator
I am from beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC where my childhood was spent swimming and fishing. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in 1972 from Morris College Sumter, SC where I majored in Elementary Education. I continued my studies in 1976 at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC receiving a Masters in Special Education. We moved to GA, and I attended the Atlanta College where I received my dental background. I have managed two very successful dental practices which has prepared me for the position that I hold today. I have a love for dentistry and a greater love for people. I am a licensed Psychologist as well as the Pastor of The Cathedral of Grace Ministries. I lead a very active life as a psychologist, Pastor, wife, mother, and Nanna. I am most grateful that I am a cancer survivor and decided that quitting is not an option in my life.
