President and Co-Founder
As Josh left a meeting to develop a new program with a Detroit-based foundation, one of his board members turned to him and said, “You shine in those gatherings.” In fact, Josh thrives most in the behind-the-scenes work of building programs and organizations, and it is through this expertise that Josh most often helps organizations thrive.
This attunement to the details of nonprofit program design has shaped a career of launches and evolutionary leaps for organizations across the United States. Josh was appointed to serve as MedShare’s first Chief Operating Officer following his contributions to the successful management of the medical aid organization’s response to Haiti’s 2010 earthquake.
Josh reprised a similar role for the Dispensary of Hope as Chief Operations Officer, building a platform the group used to grow from a regional aid group to one of the United State’s largest charitable medication distributors.
Today, as the President and Co-Founder of Extra Good, Josh develops and implements strategies for nonprofit organizations striving to achieve the greatest parts of their vision. Through his experiences creating a financially sustainable medical supply store for aid groups, managing the formation of an association for medical aid organizations that established industry guidelines and fostered discourse, and building out an accredited pharmaceutical distribution center, Josh turns ideas into action that directly contributes to missional objectives and supports the pursuit of social justice.
Josh has a bachelor’s degree in Law and Society from American University, where he was the recipient of the Charles Glover award for business leadership. He also earned a master’s degree from Arizona State University in Rhetoric and Composition while serving as a graduate assistant in their Service Learning program. He, his partner, and their chihuahua live in Atlanta, Georgia.
