For 5 years, he worked as an autotransfusionist in many of the surgical units around the state. After a late night trip to the emergency vet with one of his pets, he decided to follow his heart and began working with animals. Josh worked as a veterinary technician for 6 years at a very busy practice in Alpharetta before joining Belle Isle. He loves veterinary medicine because of the relationships developed over time with the patients and their owners. He lives in Marietta with his mutt, Santi.
