Josh is currently an athletic trainer at Mission Health in Asheville, North Carolina. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Appalachian State University and a Master of Health Science degree from Western Carolina University.  It was at Appalachian State University where Josh was introduced to PRI by his mentor Jason Robey.

Prior to joining Mission Health, Josh was the Associate Athletic Trainer for Brevard College in Brevard, NC.  While at Brevard, he was able to use PRI techniques to improve his athlete’s performance on many successful teams, including the Division 2 National Champion Mountain Bike Team.

In his current role at Mission Health, Josh outreaches athletic training services to area Western North Carolina athletes. He is also a clinical preceptor for the Western Carolina University Athletic Training Program.  Josh is a regular presenter at local and state athletic training meetings and is a strong advocate for the Postural Restoration Institute.  In January 2016, Josh earned the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) as a result of advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns, and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute®.

History of Passion

The Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) is built around 30 years of clinical practice associated with recurring successes of specific patient treatment programs. We established reproducible, outcome-based programs based on consistent evidence-based correlations, discovered with patient biomechanical, respiratory, and neurological functional patterns and limitations. My passion for the integrated systems of the body has resulted in an examination and intervention process of the asymmetrical human body called Postural Restoration.
