Mike brings with him over 15 years of professional experience in both government and the private sector. Mike has worked as an Executive Aide for an MP on Parliament Hill, and faithfully served two Lieutenant Governor’s upon relocating to New Brunswick from Ontario in 2002. Mike’s professional focus has been in the areas of sales, marketing, business development and business analysis.
Brought up in a bilingual environment and educated in French-language schools, Mike is at ease in either official language and has passed this on to his sons.
Mike is a proud father of energetic young boys, and much of his free time is spent volunteering as a coach for soccer, basketball, baseball and football. While his kids are an enormous source of personal pride, Mike is equally proud of going back to school to finish his degree. He received numerous academic honours, including a Beaverbrook Scholarship and graduated from UNB with a First Class Honours Degree in 2013. Mike is currently enrolled part-time in the UNB Fredericton History Department as a Master’s student and is working toward completing his thesis dissertation on the Experience of Canadian Soldiers in Sicily beginning in July 1943.
When not working, volunteering or studying, Mike is passionate about reading, and loves travelling with his family. He is also a Classic Film and Old- Time Radio aficionado.
