Founding Chairman

Biography

Originally trained as draftsman & architect, Michael always been a natural promoter and organizer. A strong entrepreneurial streak led me to kick off several “passion projects” while in college.

It was with Mapmakers creating quarterly supplemental inserts for USA Today centered on healthcare, environment, travel, and education topics that he learned about the world of therapy and the desperate need for therapists in the US. “I knew I could make a real difference and when I started my first company, I created one that I would be proud to join.”

Today, while not a therapist himself, he has always thought he would find a career in psychology or healthcare. His personality and personal interests make this an ideal profession for him. So, his companies have always focused on healthcare staffing. Michael founded and managed four companies: Medical Resources, Sunbelt Therapy Services of America, Progressus Therapy and MyTherapyCompany.

Michael has a life-long interest in holistic health and fitness, stress management, and the environment.
