Christina Johnson/ BFLY Coaching
It has often been said that whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. If that is true, Christina Johnson has superhuman strength. A teen mom born to a teenage mother, Johnson refused to be a statistic. As one of the stars of VH1’s “Atlanta Exes”, The visionary mogul is the co-founder of beauty brand Butterfly EFX alongside celebrity makeup artist Toni Acey. Johnson and Acey leveraged their affinity for fashion and style by developing a highly pigmented palette of lipsticks and lip-glosses that are not only richly saturated in color, but also beautifully packaged.
Having overcome years of setbacks and battles, Johnson feels that she is finally living her purpose and what some may consider the new American dream. As a devoted mother, businesswoman, spiritual guru and philanthropist. She is also the founder of BFLY Coaching that will produce its first event, Amazing Me Amazing Life Event.

She holds Bachelor of Science in elementary education from Winston-Salem State University and earned a Master of Education in early childhood from Kennesaw State University in 2010.

Furthermore, while teaching, she also dedicated her time as a mentor and a role model for several girls of color. It was the experience as a mentor that reminded her of the impact the color complex has had on women of color. Afterwards, a flame was ignited, and since Tandice has dedicated her time and effort towards eliminating the color complex and increasing self awareness and acceptance.
