Josh grew up in Fremont, Iowa on a farm and was raised with small town values – including helping others. Starting at a young age, Josh and his family would take mission trips across the country and the world to help individuals in many different circumstances. Now in his adult life, he continually upholds those values in both his corporate careers and everyday life.
Graduating from Drake University in 2014 with a degree in Finance, Josh began gathering the skills that would lead him to be the avid networker and financial mind that drives his success in development for nonprofits. Outside of his corporate career in finance, Josh served in many philanthropic roles even founding his own organization, OPEN (Omaha, Philanthropy, Education and Networking). OPEN is an exclusive speaker series and networking event which was started as a development tool for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Omaha.
After joining the Dreamweaver Foundation’s Guild in 2019, Josh quickly learned that he had a passion for serving the senior community. As Director of Development, Josh’s passion for the mission of the Foundation has changed from volunteerism to a career, which he plans to take to new heights in order to impact the lives of even more seniors.
Currently residing in Omaha, Josh enjoys spending time with family and friends, doing outdoor activities with his dog, Ryder, swimming, going to the gym, traveling, and trying all different types of food and restaurants.
