Senior Member Services Specialist
Michael has been a licensed insurance agent for over one year and has an active license in 40 U.S. states. Michael grew up in Wisconsin, and his mother was an administrator for a medical clinic, so he knows a thing or two about the healthcare industry. His educational background is in water resource management. He spent six years working as a commercial fisheries observer on the Bering Sea and the Aleutian Islands. Before transitioning into Medicare, he also worked for U.S. Fish and Wildlife on Lake Champlain’s sea lamprey control project in Vermont and New York.
Michael works closely with members in Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs), coordinating Medicare and Medicaid.
