Please welcome Media Coordinator Josh Schoenblatt to our media team! Josh, a St. Charles, Illinois, native will graduate from Drake University on May 18 with a bachelor’s degree in politics and an entrepreneurship minor. He joins our expanding media team where he will reconcile invoices, distribute ad copy, traffic jobs and more. Prior to joining our team, Josh worked as a barista for Starbucks.
When he isn’t working, Josh loves to be outside — exploring, trail running or off-roading. He volunteers with the Puppy Jake Foundation, where he trains service dogs for veterans. When asked what he loves about Des Moines, Josh explains, “I love how Des Moines feels like home. Des Moines has many amenities that a large city offers, but I can easily run into someone I know as if it were a small town. Plus, I love how Des Moines is the place to be for presidential politics. Every four years, the country comes to Des Moines and listens to what we have to say. And in many cases, it can make or break any presidential candidate’s dreams.”
