Rebecca Johnson, Ph.D., owner and guide of Dynamic History Salem, was a college educator in the sciences and humanities for over 10 years before falling in love with Salem. She studied biology, theology, and American studies, which seems like an odd combination, but blending these fields gave her great insight into how people relate to themselves, each other, and their environment. History is only relevant when it’s relatable, and Rebecca is here to help you find the stories that are meaningful to you.
Limited to 12 Athenaeum members.
