Erin Johnson, Founder

Erin is the founder of Ramp Athletics. Her journey started as a Physical Therapist Assistant knowing that her ultimate goal was to work in orthopedics. Erin became a personal trainer and shortly after graduated from massage school. Over the next 23 years, utilizing all of her education and experience, she created exercise and recovery programs for her clients. She has worked with all ages: high school athletes, collegiate athletes, professional athletes, and the aging baby boomer.  Opening up RAMP Athletics has been a goal since 2014, when she sat down and wrote her first business plan.  Now it is time to watch it all come to fruition. Apart from the world of athletics and recovery, she loves to adventure in the great outdoors.
