Josh has a long background in Oregon, with 11 years of work as biologist, natural resource manager, and Soil and Water conservationist and district manager in the Klamath Falls area. After a short stint in Florida where he took on a Grants Administrator position, the family missed Oregon and soon came back so they could continue to explore Oregon’s outdoors, and so Josh could pursue work in natural resource conservation.
