Mike is a veteran coach with For Impact, tracing his roots back to 2003. Mike has a background in business, including several years in finance/accounting and an MBA from the University of Notre Dame. After graduation, Mike decided to transition from the world of business to the social sector as an AmeriCorps volunteer, where he truly had an epiphany that “he could really have an impact on the world in a meaningful way in this sector.” From that experience, Mike came to For Impact originally back in 2003 before rejoining in 2010, following several years in education at College Summit, an award-winning national organization increasing the college enrollment rate in low-income communities.
At College Summit, Mike utilized the For Impact frameworks and thinking as Director of New Sites, where his team successfully fundraised, set up school partnerships, and launched multiple sites, eventually enabling thousands of young people to enroll in college. Having rejoined For Impact several years ago, he’s now trained and coached thousands of staff, board, and organizations across the globe. Throughout his career, Mike has been recognized as a catalyst, sharing his contagious enthusiasm for life and constant improvement.
He and his wife, Jessica, live in Colorado Springs, CO with their sons Nathaniel and Alexander. He’s passionate about training, personal development, and seeing people reach their potential.
