Josh found his way into the most rewarding field in the world when he walked up to the 6’6″ Dr. Donald Davidson Dodge at a Petsmart Veterinary Services in Boulder, CO and asked if he could volunteer. Dr. Dodge responded, “Nope, but we’ll hire you!” That was in 1995. Since then, Josh has filled every role in a veterinary hospital, excluding DVM, from reception to tech to supervisor to manager to owner in two different small animal practices.
A lifetime optimist and “happy guy” Josh was shocked to find himself burnt out, feeling alone, and crying in his kitchen one morning over scrambled eggs while his surprised wife looked on unbelieving. Since then, he’s dedicated his professional trajectory to elevating veterinary professionals and teams so that they can authentically flourish, the result of which will be thriving veterinary hospitals. Collaborating with Dr. Pope to help bring the 1 Life Connected message to vet med makes all the sense in the world.
Josh lives in Colorado with his amazing wife, three insane parrots, two Great Danes that occasionally share the couch, a 7 pound cat also known as “The Golden Child,” some fish tanks and a few bee hives.
