The former World ranked backstroker was one of Australia's youngest Commonwealth Games swimmers. She was just 16 years old when selected for the Auckland Commonwealth Games. She represented Australia for a number of years, winning Bronze at the Auckland Games in 1990 in the 100m Backstroke. She also won a Silver Medal in the Medley Relay at the 1991 World Championships in Perth. Johanna was the first Australian (female) swimmer to break the 30-second barrier for the 50m backstroke.
After announcing her retirement from swimming in May 1993, Johanna joined the Seven Network. She reported for shows such as Sportsworld and Sydney Weekender, and hosted The AFL Half Time Show. In 1994 and 1995, Johanna hosted Seven's Summer of Tennis, and worked as a commentator and presenter of the 1994 World Swimming Championships from Rome. Later that year Johanna presented the Weekend Sports News and then became Channel Seven's first national female (and youngest ever) sports presenter.
Johanna took time out to care for her two sons, returning to television in 1998. She was a regular panellist on Foxtel's Beauty and the Beast. She was also a regular guest on ABC TV's sports panel show, The Fat and Good News Week.
She hosted the opening of Stadium Australia and the opening of Fox Studios for Foxtel in 1999.
