“Sarah Johnson brings a background of human resources and years working inside the insurance industry with Cigna,” said Christopher Bomberger, Denton ISD Executive Director of Risk Management and Child Nutrition. “In her role with Keller ISD, Ms. Johnson worked directly with the systems we have in Denton ISD. The transition from her role in Keller ISD will enable her to hit the ground running with our benefits team. We are thrilled to have her join Denton ISD.”

Ms. Johnson began her career as a billing associate in 2003 before becoming a case manager for Wolmed from 2006-2012. From 2012-2015, Ms. Johnson was a Short-Term Disability Manager for Cigna. 

For the past eight years, Ms. Johnson served as the Director of Human Resources for Keller ISD, where she developed and maintained employee support initiatives and oversaw the identification, tracking and mitigation of workers’ compensation related risk and costs. 

While in Keller ISD, Ms. Johnson supported the Keller Working on Wellness program, which focused on wellness initiatives, including the annual Casey Kid’s Fun Run and Health Expo. In addition, Ms. Johnson also designed and implemented a communication plan to help familiarize employees with benefits available through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

Ms. Johnson earned her bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Texas at Tyler. She earned her master’s degree in government from Texas Woman’s University.
