Salandra Johnson Joins TC Board TeamTriangle Connection is pleased to announce that Salandra Johnson is joining the board of directors team.  Salandra and her wife Theresa of 10 years live in Sorrento Springs.  They were introduced to our family by friends and neighbors WIlsa and Mari. Salandra has degrees in HR, Industrial & Labor Relations, Criminology and Business & Organization Security Management.  She has held various HR roles throughout her 22 year career here in FL.  She is currently working towards her SHRM certification and intends on pursuing her PHD.  She is joining us with the hopes of giving back to the community and making a difference in the lives of the LGBTQ family. Welcome, Salandra, to the board team. One of the board’s primary goals has been to expand our diversity of friends within the community. One way to see this goal become more of a reality is to ensure our board is more diverse and inclusive. In summary, to connect with more people we need a more diverse board of directors. An example of how we are seeing progress is that our board team now consists of six women and six men.   “DIVERSITY - INCLUSION - BELONGING”
