Meet Kijah Johnson

Posted Oct 12, 2022

Kijah, a native of Charleston, South Carolina, moved to Bossier when she was nine years old. She didn’t go far when she chose a college, attending Northwestern State University in Natchitoches to pursue a bachelor’s degree in health and exercise science. At Northwestern, she was a member of the Purple Pizzazz Pom Line, which sparked her love for fitness. The familiarity and diversity of the Shreveport-Bossier area made Willis-Knighton a perfect fit to begin her professional career. As an exercise specialist, Kijah focuses on motivation, encouraging fitness center members to push themselves. “My philosophy is ‘Never give up on yourself,” she says. “It may shock you the different heights you will reach when you don’t give up.”
