Evergreen Village at Bloomington’s Very Own Josh Dodds – 10 Under 40 Award Winner

Gardant Management Solutions is proud to announce that an Administrator from one of our communities has been honored in the Ten Under 40 Awards. Josh Dodds, from Evergreen Village at Bloomington has earned this 2022 award from the Chamber of Commerce in Bloomington, Indiana. Josh Dodds has been an Administrator at Evergreen Village at Bloomington for 5 years, since the building opened!

Josh Dodds was born and raised in Bloomington, Indiana. He didn’t start his career in senior living however, he was a radio DJ for years hosting morning at the local station in town. He then became a Director of Housekeeping and Food Service at the hospital and then transitioned into a Housekeeping Director at a brand-new skilled community. He instantly loved the relationships with the residents, their families, and the opportunities to serve them. He enjoyed that each day was different. After one year at this position, he completed his AIT and received his administrator’s license. The best advice he’s ever received in his career was from an amazing boss he had when he first became an Administrator, and that was, “Regardless of your success, stay humble and hungry.” Humble enough to appreciate it and learn from it, but hungry so you don’t get satisfied and complacent. Now, he cannot imagine doing any other career.

If he had to describe himself in three words, Josh says he is a Coach, Loyal, and Committed. Outside of Evergreen Village at Bloomington, you can find Josh coaching high school football (Go Mustangs!), or coaching youth baseball (Go Arrows!), camping, riding motorcycles, traveling, and DJ weddings and parties. He is most proud of his family; his sons Kit (13) and Rhett (7) and his wife Hana are his world. Not only do all these activities keep him busy, but he also still hopes to accomplish so much more professionally as well. He wants to grow in the industry by joining committees, being on boards that will help guide the future of the industry.
