Josh Brown, Chief Pup-erations Officer, with Dana Niguel since 2004 and now with Laguna Niguel


Josh is Laguna Niguel Veterinary Hospital’s practice manager and head technician. He has worked with animals for over 20 years. Josh is very proud of his work and his team at Laguna Niguel. He has many duties at the hospital, ranging from making sure the facilities are immaculate to assisting in surgery. His skills as a technician are a great asset, especially because of his previous experience working at a 24-hour emergency veterinary hospital and assisting in orthopedic surgeries. Outside of work, Josh spends time at home with his wife and son. His weekends include relaxing at the beach and watching his son participate in BMX contests and helping him develop his art as an aspiring photographer. Josh has two dogs, a mixed breed named Blue and a Chihuahua named Layla, and a black cat named Welsley.
