House Manager

Josh Cornelius

Josh Cornelius

Josh Cornelius grew up in West Deptford, New Jersey.  Being the middle child of Three boys, life was a bit rough and unforgiving for Josh.  He stood out as a young man in high school athletics. He played Three different sports and loved being part of a team. He was a leader in high school football and was offered scholarships at a few different colleges. His life off the field, however, took president over his future and drugs became the number one priority in his life. He went through the ups and downs of addiction until he hit rock bottom and entered treatment in 2019. Josh has continued to enjoy being a member of a team by promoting events and sports activities for the clients in the house. He enjoys creating an environment of competition and success through group sports, and we appreciate that Josh can cultivate that atmosphere to add to our program. We are excited to have Josh as our manager at The Nook Sober Living.
