Josie was born in New York, raised in Brooklyn. She accepted Christ at the age of 8 years old and it's been a fun adventure since! Josie moved to California to attend Stanford University and decided to stay after falling in love with its diversity and sunny weather. At Stanford, she was a leader at Campus Crusade for Christ and volunteered with the Stanford Carnival that served the East Palo Alto community.
Josie worked for over 10 years in corporate and financial roles, but a transformational experience led her to turn her focus to non-profit work. She loves walking, hiking, volunteering, and her sweet dog, Ethel.
