So nice to hear a colleague of the ages!
I truly am amazed by the continued work Mike does. I worked under him when he was the CEO at MHAO. I’m so glad he’s still in the community addressing issues that we can’t ever lose sight of! Plus I like the guests he has on the podcast!
An essential voice for Social Work
Mike was my practicum instructor when I earned my Master of Social Work degree. He later mentored me as I led a newly formed non profit organization and has continued to be an irreplaceable source of guidance in my later career. I can’t think of anyone who knows more about every aspect of social work, from the clinical to the administrative. Give him a listen. You’ll be glad you did.
