Janine Bray

Contract Administrator

Janine is our contract administrator and a graduate of Bob Jones University. She handles all of our contracts with clients, developers and contractors.

Her background is in interior design. This helps her understand how architects and designers think, and how best to support their work. As the firm’s first contract administrator, she’s busy creating forms and templates to make project contracts and documentation more accurate and efficient. As she puts it, “We want everybody to know what they’re doing, who’s paying for it, and in what order.”

Janine loves the firm’s commitment to restorative design and creating buildings that exist in harmony with their environment. “We’re responsible for enlightening our clients, sharing new information and presenting options. Everybody who works at Johnston Design Group is committed to that mission and I’m proud to be part of that.”

I enjoy decorating, boating with my husband, Sunday evening meals with my whole family and just about anything I get to do with my grandchildren.

Favorite destination
Any destination with a beach is amazing but one of my favorite trips was to Bar Harbor Maine. I also have such wonderful memories of our family trips to Disney World.

Recent read
My Bible is on my end table and what I read before I get up. Atomic Habits is what I read when I need a reboot. I usually prefer biographies, but my most recent read is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. So good!

Favorite quote
“The older I get, the more selective I am of who is in my tribe. I would rather have four quarters than a hundred pennies.”
