Emily Johnson | CFO

CFO | Co-Owner

Emily Johnson is the chief financial officer and a co-owner of Tri-County Feed Service. She brings over 20 years of accounting and business experience to the company, and it is that expertise that has contributed substantially to the company's success in the last 10 years. She is responsible for all aspects of Tri-County Feed's financial and accounting operations. She is also co-owner of Rivers Ace in Whitehall, Oceana Builders Supply in Shelby,and Rothbury Hardware in Rothbury. 

When Emily has some free time, she spends it with her husband, Jerod; their children, Alyssa, Brionna and Jaden; and their two dogs, Tux and Otis. The busy family loves to travel and they take time every summer to camp in beautiful Pentwater. Her origins may have been in big city life, but her roots are now firmly established in the rustic beauty of rural Michigan. It's only the frequent snowstorms, she says, that she could do with less of. Emily plants her own garden every year, is an avid reader, and loves music and playing the piano.
