Dr. Teresa Johnson-Hernandez is a born and raised country girl with small-town Texas values and a vision as big as Texas.She is the youngest of five children and was raised to understand the importance of faith, family, dedication, and hard work.

Teresa grew up in Mirando City, Texas. Her father, Judge Salvador Johnson, and mother, Vicenta Johson, now retired from Webb County Director EJ Salinas Community Center, taught her the importance of being a servant leader and giving back to her community. Teresa has been married to her husband Leonel Hernandez for 30 years and raised three remarkable young men filled with faith. They are now enjoying their role as proud grandparents. Leo served in the US Army and Teresa understands the sacrifices of being a military wife. After her husband served our county, Teresa’s family put down their roots in Bruni, Texas which they are proud to call home.
