FLS Employee Spotlight – Josi Saunders

Josi joined FLS in September of 2016, but her love of language and diverse cultures started long before then. Josi says she always knew she would pursue an occupation that utilized her passion for the Spanish language and culture.

Josi attended the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) on a full basketball scholarship and she used this scholarship to attain a degree in Foreign Language and International Trade. During her time at UAH, Josi spent a month in Costa Rica completing an internship working with young children. This experience further solidified her love for the Hispanic culture.

After graduating, Josi joined FLS as the Office Administrator and in May of 2017, she was promoted into the role of Business Development. Josi now spends most of her time calling on current and potential clients throughout the North Alabama area. She takes every opportunity to interface with companies, clinics, and schools whose stakeholders need assistance communicating in a foreign language.

Josi is not a Huntsville native; she has lived in Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia and lower Alabama, but she considers Huntsville to be her favorite. Fun fact: Josi has an identical twin! So, if you think you see Josi out and about, greet her in Spanish. If you get an “Hola” in return, you’ll know you’ve got the right twin.
