Steph Merritt Johnson
Vice President

Steph is the Co-Founder of B the Difference and helped create this charity for the love of her brother, Brandon, and the desire to help those who are currently battling Neurofibromatosis. Born and raised in South Florida, Steph graduated from the Florida State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music and Business Minor. She is a classically trained vocalist.  After working for  Razor & Tie Records in New York and WJRR in Orlando, FL, Steph moved out to the Vail Valley in Colorado where she enjoyed teaching snowboarding, becoming a member of the events department for Beaver Creek, and being the Tasting Room, Sponsorships, and Events Manager for Crazy Mountain Brewing Company. 

She is currently the Chef Concierge at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, where she is able to create and foster relationships with companies in the community who believe in B the Difference’s mission. This also allows her to assist in developing and executing events and curate B Happy trips, which she enjoys thoroughly.  When not at the Park Hyatt, Steph can be found snowboarding and snowmobiling in the winter and hiking, rafting, and camping in the summer with her husband, Chris, and avalanche rescue dog, Luna.
