“My family owned and operated a small company for most of my life. I witnessed how much energy it took to focus on the operational aspects of the business to ensure success. I also saw how an employer could be taken advantage of by an unscrupulous employee and harmed by a system unfriendly to most employers’ interests. My focus is to concentrate on leveling the playing field and ensuring that employers’ legitimate interests are protected.”
Josh relishes his time with family and friends, planning camping trips and other retreats as often as possible. During the summers, you will often find Josh mountain biking on some wooded trail or kayaking the Great Lakes.
