Where I Work: SPRYE’s Director Marie Johnson

Where I Work showcases people who work in Rye. The feature is inspired in part by exploring how the pandemic has impacted our work environment and part by wanting to understand how and where people work inside the City of Rye.

Today we meet Marie Johnson.

Johnson: My office is just your basic office with desks, chairs, computers with double monitors that I love and phone and plenty of storage space with microwave and refrigerator. Papers cover most of the desk.  On my wall is a sign that says Do More Of What Makes You Happy and that sign makes me smile. I have a photo of a beach in NJ with seashells surrounding it, so that will often motivate me to save my money so I can retire on the beach.
