Josh Rivers is a Tax Staff Accountant at Ernst & Young (EY).  He has previously served on the Junior Board to Josh Cares, a local non-profit dedicated to providing support for children at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center when their families have difficulties supporting them during their hospitalization, after seven years of various leadership roles and volunteering with the organization.  Josh heavily participated in his theatre program through technical theatre leadership roles throughout high school including positions during the first three productions CAST ever performed.  When CAST obtained its 501(c)(3) designation, Josh decided to offer his accounting and tax knowledge to support the newly formed non-profit as a consultant.  Since then, Josh has been extended and accepted an offer to join CAST's Board of Directors.  Josh also spends his time as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Cincinnati in the Carl H. Lindner College of Business Accounting Department.

Kim Cochrane

Kim Cochrane is an award-winning graphic designer with additional experience in production, marketing, photography and art direction. Currently she works for PureRED at the Kroger Co. headquarters in downtown Cincinnati remotely directing a team of Photographers, Copywriters, Designers and Production Designers across the country to produce the high-quality, weekly food circular for almost 2,800 Kroger and it’s different banner stores.
