Mike is currently enrolled in the Masters of Social Work program at Penn West University. He worked as a full-time seminary teacher of the LDS church for twenty years. Mike summarizes his reason for changing careers as a “journey from orthodoxy to compassion”. He no longer subscribes to a belief system, but has found that making decisions based on values has been more fulfilling. He received both his B.A in Communication and Psychology in 2002 and M.A in Education in 2008 from Boise State University.
Mike values compassion, kindness, and listening. He wants to help others process their beliefs and values in a non-judgmental way. He enjoys playing softball, eating chocolate, and walking his yellow lab with his wife of 22 years. They have two sons and are former foster parents. They live in Nampa Idaho.
