Michael completed his Master of Education degree in College Student Personnel Administration from James Madison University (JMU) in Harrisonburg, VA. Michael’s past experiences have equipped him with a critical, counseling-based lens for providing career development services to all students. In his spare time, Michael enjoys visiting local coffee shops, spending time with family and friends, and spontaneously traveling to places he has never ventured before.
