Speaker Bio: Josh Keeler

Josh Keeler is WMPMI’s VP of Administration. Josh began volunteering with WMPMI’s in March of 2016 as Director of Technology and moved into the VP role in 2017. Josh has worked as a senior technical recruiter at Kforce Professional Staffing in the Grand Rapids Technology Group since 2013. He enjoys being able to advocate for people, help them grow personally and professionally, and to subsequently improve his or her quality of life. He truly believes he can help everyone he meets. His career map includes 5 years of agency staffing experience and prior to that he worked for 5 years managing information technology projects in a medical manufacturing environment.

When Josh isn’t networking with top West Michigan’s talent, you can find him physcially challenging himself in unique ways. The last few years he has been training in circus arts, where he’s been undergoing gymnastics-based strength training, trampoline, trapeze and partner acrobatics. Performing in a local circus for a crowd is just part of the fun he does in the summer! On the days he isn’t circus training, he is training in martial arts, for which he has had a lifelong passion. For him the last 16 years in serious study of Tai Chi and Kung Fu has been about the unification of mind and body, which he feels helps integrate a person intellectually and emotionally.

In addition to winning hearts and minds, he’s constantly focused on self-improvement and trying to deepen his experience in whatever he is doing. He earned his B.A. in Philosophy from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2007 and an Associate’s Degree in Computer Networking from GRCC in 2004.
