He began his career working in globally focused communications roles in the profit (Disney) and non-profit (Rotary International, Hands-On Network) sectors in France, Canada, and the US before transiting to higher education. Now settled in as the Assistant Director of the Graham Office of Career Management at the University of Kentucky, Josh is a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)®, Strong Interest Inventory (SII)®, and Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF)® certified career management practitioner.

He’s actively involved in the National Career Development Association and is the Past President of the Kentucky Career Development Association.
Helping college students leverage their degree and launch their careers is Josh’s goal.
