As Branch Manager, Josh leads the Empowered Financial team and manages the recruiting and hiring of new members. He helps ensure that our team is supported and enabled to provide a superior experience to our clients, from going through the Empowered Solution process to attending our many informational events. Josh used to work in the Social Security Administration, so he has experienced a unique side of the retiree’s life. He commonly experienced devastating conversations when someone realized that Social Security wouldn’t provide for their entire income or that Medicare didn’t fully cover all expenses as they expected. “How am I supposed to survive?” they would cry. Josh is excited about the mission of Empowered Financial and aims to help prevent more retirees from suffering the same realization as some of those he has worked with in the past.
