Chantel Johnson was born and raised in Chicago, IL. After receiving her bachelors degree from Carleton College in Minnesota, and masters degree in social work from the University of Washington in Seattle, she was ready to change the world. But in 2014 her world was changed. Chantel’s youngest brother was shot several times and died a year later due to complications. Out of her grief, she redirected her efforts to help communities and families live more sustainably. Off Grid In Color was birthed to provide sustainably raised meat, doula and counseling services.
Chantel received my doula certification G.R.R.A.C.E.E. National Doula Academy in Atlanta, GA. She has educated many birth givers about birthing options and assisted in bringing beautiful babies into the world.
