Joshua joined our team in May of 2014, through a friend’s referral. He quickly excelled and found his home in our Administration team, doing what he loves best—helping people! We wanted to learn more about what brought him to California, so we sat down with him to find out!
Why Veterinary Medicine?
“I kind of stumbled upon it” says Josh. Although he grew up with pets, he didn’t know just how advanced veterinary medicine was until he came to ACCESS, his first veterinary job.
What Brought Him To California?
Josh had always dreamed of living in California, so, in the winter of 2014, he and his significant other packed up everything they owned and headed west! Joshua enjoys the laid back feeling and sunny weather that SoCal has to offer.
Where Is His Favorite Place To Visit?
If we’re talking West Coast, it has to be Disneyland! Joshua is a huge Disney fanatic and loves being so close to the happiest place on earth! Back on the East Coast, Josh calls Broadway home. He greatly enjoys musical theater and the hustle and bustle of the city.
What Is His Favorite Animal?
“Canines, specifically, Pugs! Those things are just so adorable, even if they’re ‘pugly’ and they always have a positive attitude—not a care in the world!”
What Would Joshua Be Doing If He Weren’t At ACCESS?
Joshua has a passion for photography and movies and says that if he weren’t at ACCESS, he would most likely be pursing photography or production.
What Is His Favorite Meal?
“Penne with Marinara.”
What Is The Best Think Joshua Cooks?
“I make a mean banana bread!”
Does He Collect Anything?
Playbills! Joshua has collected over 50 Playbills from shows he’s seen. He also hopes to add to his growing collection of Disney Designer Collection dolls.
What Is His Greatest Achievement?
“Having the courage to pick up and move to California, and being able to make it all work.”
In addition to loving animals, Joshua also loves the medical side of the veterinary field. Being able to observe a PDA procedure—where a cardiologist repairs a hole in the heart—is one of his favorite things to see! Joshua also has simple advice for pet owners “keep your dog on a leash, even if it is trained well.”
We are happy to have Joshua on our team and pleased to see him succeed in a position where he can put his Communications degree to work!
