Joshua Jones joined the staff of Open Doors Academy in January of 2015 and currently serves as the Executive Assistant to the C.E.O., Dr. Annemarie Grassi. Mr. Jones has spent his entire life in Northern Ohio, albeit in three different areas of the state. He was raised in North Central Ohio where he graduated from Bellevue Senior High School in 2005. Joshua then moved to Northwest Ohio where he graduated from Bowling Green State University with two bachelor’s degrees in the fields of music education and voice performance. He received the President’s Award for Academic Achievement at the end of his studies at BGSU.
Loving to educate youth but choosing to not participate in the politics of public education, Joshua chose to instead educate as an assistant, senior field sales, branch, and district manager with Vector Marketing Corporation. Although not teaching music, Mr. Jones was able to instead teach over 1000 young adults valuable skills in sales, time management, personal accountability, and professional development on a local, statewide, and regional scale. Through his experience with Vector Marketing, Joshua discovered his love for working hand-in-hand with an executive in order to help a business run at maximum efficiency. This passion along with his love of education led him to ODA where he is able to use his skills to achieve both passions.
When not at work with ODA, Joshua spends much of his free time performing domestically and internationally as a volunteer musician with the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus. In his free time, he enjoys spending quality time with his friends and family, traveling, and hanging out with his cat, Hamm.
