A Portland native, Mike, has always felt a deep connection to the Northwest and loves to share local history and be a defining part in shaping its future. In his early years he was able to join the Boys and Girls Club, meeting lifelong friends, playing sports, and developing the morals that define him today. After graduating from Cleveland High School, he started working at the Boys and Girls Club as summer staff and then was promoted to Athletic Director. It was a tremendous honor to serve the community and be a positive influence with the Boys and Girls Club youth, just as he had experienced years earlier.
While attending George Fox University, Mike worked at Central Drugs Pharmacy. Starting as a Clerk then promoted to Manager of the 100-year-old business. Attending MBA classes in advanced business practices and managing the pharmacy was the merging of “book” education and real-life education that shaped his business acumen. After graduation Mike consulted small business owners as they navigated the struggles of growth, development, and long-term strategies. All while starting his own successful business with those same friends so many years ago from the Boys and Girls Club.
