Josh Johnson, originally from Portland, OR, served as an Agroforestry Volunteer in The Gambia from 2009-2011 where he worked on food security as part of an NGO. He currently works in training at the State Department, which coincides neatly with his role as Professional Development director for RPCV/W. 

He has a M.A. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Central Michigan U, and a M.A. in Anthropology from Washington State University. For fun he studies ancient Greek, and, alongside his wife, explores what DC has to offer.
