Johanna graduated from the University of Vienna in Educational Sciences with a focus on (Austrian) Sign Language. While studying she was working with people with disabilities in several contexts. After graduating she worked with Deaf youth and adults, enabling them to get qualified jobs. She was part of the team which built a social franchise for institutions for the Deaf, using a specific teaching model including Deaf Didactics and micro learning. Shortly after joining the project she became the educational lead, emerging into the role of educational manager in the international headquarters. At Lingvano she focuses on increasing the users’ learning experience on one hand and is part of business development on the other hand. In this role she is passionate to help Lingvano accelerate its mission to make the world more accessible for the Deaf community.
