Anneliese Johnson continued her education at Towson after receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree in History and Minor in Geography through Towson’s Honors College program. In the fall of 2007, she joined the Social Science Master’s Program to advance her understanding of American nationalism through a multi-disciplinary approach. Anneliese demonstrates her knowledge and passion for politics through being involved in mostly county-level political campaigns and organizations. She credits the flexibility of the program as being critical for her success, due to other work and life commitments - such as having 3 young children, 2 of which were born during her enrollment at the graduate level. She believes that the possibility knowledge creates is infinite.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed with the things you didn't do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
