Josie has a BS in Business & Industrial Management. She and her husband started their own company the second year they were married (40+ years ago) and have had their own companies ever since. The current company is a product development and manufacturing virtual corporation, outsourcing almost everything, and creating teams of consultants as needed on a project basis. In philanthropy Josie primarily supports global issues from environmental justice to human rights, especially focused on women’s equity and opportunity. She co-chairs the WDN circle on Women Confronting Militarism. She envisions a world in which women and girls are respected and appreciated. They have voice, independent choice, freedom from violence and full participation in society. Josie tries to play golf and do yoga every week when in town. Sometimes, she succeeds.
