Hi! I'm Mike, a surgeon who grew up in Hutchinson and attended St. Olaf College and the University of Minnesota. My wife, Melissa, and I have four children aged nine to 21 years old. Like many parents, we believe there is no "one-size-fits-all" when it comes to children. Together, our kids have attended seven out of ten Minnetonka schools. The Minnetonka School District is without a doubt one of the finest in the state, if not the country.
I've worn many hats, past and present*, as a volunteer in our community and in the communities I've worked in:
Our blended family is: BIPOC, White, and LGBTQIA+. Our children are neurodiverse learners who have utilized a wide range of the district's offerings, including special education services, 504 plans, the MHS Compass program, advanced learner programs, VANTAGE, and Ready-Start Kindergarten. I even have a niece and nephew that open-enroll for the immersion program. If elected, I would work to serve all those in the district, including those who often go unheard.
I was the Troop Cookie Manager for my daughter's Girl Scouts troop, and helped them raise thousands of dollars to support their activities as well as Girl Scout activities across the region.
I've played Ultimate Frisbee for the past 30 years, and organized regional, national and international championship tournaments. I even helped coach the Minnetonka High School team.
I hold a Divemaster certification through the Professional Association of Diving Instructors and hope to go diving again soon.
