Employee of The Quarter!

Position: Senior Case Manager
Location: JDAP Circuit 20 (Lee, Hendry, Glades, Collier, Charlotte Counties)
Time with BAYS: 13 months

My name is Joshua Brownstein, but please call me Josh. I ama Florida transplant hailing from Texas wishing to be closer to my family. I moved to Florida about 2 years ago in search of a career that kept me in line with my criminal justice aspirations. Previously studying Criminal Justice at the University of North Texas and using that knowledge working with the Texas Juvenile Justice Department through Denton County Juvenile Detention and Probation, I was seeking to find something familiar but also something challenging albeit rewarding, and I am so happy I found BAYS!

Through the past year, I have experienced the many different aspects of Bays Culture, and working with the families in my own community allows me to truly see the impact our program has on the community. In addition to directly working with the community I am currently a part of the Peer Training Team with Bays assisting in training with CPR / First Aid and will hopefully be training Right Interactions (PAR) in 2024! Maybe I’ll see you in one of my classes!

Bays has given me the opportunity to have a flexible work schedule, be rewarded with the endless engagement with those in the community who need it the most, and most of all allowed me to be a part of the amazing culture that has been created within our organization. Here’s to many more years!
