Meet Our Founder

As a professional water skier for over twenty years and the world record holder in women’s slalom from 1992–2010, Kristi Overton Johnson took to the waters of the world with passion, perseverance, and a desire to impact the world of water skiing. This wife and mother of three now focuses her passions and experiences to encourage and equip people for victory in every season of their lives.

Kristi married her best friend, Tim Johnson, in 1994. Kristi and Tim met while attending the University of Central Florida.

They have three children: Ty, Dalton, and Ivy. Dalton and Ivy were adopted from Russia in 2005. Currently, Tim and Kristi reside in Central Florida, home base to Kristi Overton Johnson Ministries and In His Wakes, both nonprofit ministries Kristi founded.
