Q&A with CEP’s Newest DPT, Josh

Q: Who or what has inspired/influenced you most when it comes to how you approach your work? I would have to say who has inspired me the most when it comes to how I approach my work would have to be my parents. As for influence, it would be my time in the Navy. My parents come from humble beginnings and their hard work and dedication in life gave me the opportunity to grow up in a better environment than what they had and I am greatly appreciative of that.
