Erica Olenski Johansen Uses Her Caregiving Experience as a North Star

In this episode, Joy sits down with Erica Olenski Johansen.

Erica is a master community builder, healthcare innovation advisor, and perhaps most importantly, she’s a caregiver to a son with cancer. She’s also the Founding Executive Director of August’s Artists, a nonprofit organization that facilitates a simple activity during a family’s challenging healthcare experience – coloring on the hospital room door window with crayons.

August’s Artists helps pediatric healthcare patients and their families commemorate their hospital-door artwork as a way to celebrate some of the most formative and impactful moments in life. Listen in as she shares her journey.
