While following her husband's duty stations, Josie taught middle school biology in Takoma Park, Maryland and was then an academic advisor at University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida. Josie has a bachelor's degree in agriculture education from Iowa State University and a master's degree in agriculture education, communications, and leadership from The Ohio State University.
