Kami Johnson

Office Manager

 

Kami started with us in 2007.  She graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 2004 with a Business degree in Marketing. Most office duties including human resources, appointment scheduling, payroll, account receivable and account payable are managed by Kami.  If you call Pacific Coast Landscaping you will probably get a chance to talk to her.  Kami is the mother of 2 very active children, Lyla and Stella, who both participate in water sports.  She has been with her wonderful husband for 23 years.  She loves crafting, baking and camping in her spare time.  If there's a prank to be pulled or a joke to be had it's probably from Kami.  Call today to schedule an appointment or just to say hi!
