About Josh: I started working at Marietta College after I graduated in 2008. My grandfather, father, brother, sister in law, and wife are also Marietta College graduates.

I am the admission representative for incoming freshman for students who are from the southern part Ohio. I enjoy traveling to towns such as Athens, McConnelsville, Pomeroy, Ironton, Chillicothe, Waterford, Beverly and bigger cities including Cincinnati and Dayton. (All my counties include Washington, Morgan, Athens, Meigs, Vinton, Jackson, Gallia, Lawrence, Scioto, Pike, Ross, Fayette, Highland, Adams, Brown, Clinton, Greene, Clark, Miami, Montgomery, Warren, Clermont, Hamilton, Butler, Preble, and Darke.)

In the office I help coordinate our on and off campus events, oversee our online campaigns, operate the admission office social media ventures, organize enrollment days, and other various duties.

I reside in Marietta with my wife Carrie. We are proud foster parents to the women’s basketball program (Sierra and Candice). We also enjoy being around friends, reading, and traveling. I am also working on obtaining my masters degree in higher education administration from the University of Louisville.
