Mike began his career out of college as a pharmaceutical representative, working for AstraZeneca, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. During his 13 years there, he promoted various products in the cardiovascular, neuroscience, and pulmonary therapeutic areas in Washington, D.C. and later in Baltimore. The majority of his time was spent helping those experiencing mental health issues, both in the hospital and in outpatient settings. After leaving AstraZeneca, he briefly worked for Pfizer before recently joining Sunovion Pharmaceuticals as a CNS Specialty Care Pharmaceutical Representative on the eastern shore of Maryland and Delaware.
Mike and his wife Erica have two young children and are expecting a third, a daughter due in July. Mike is already demonstrating to his kids the value a Mount education can provide. For this, he uses his twin brother, uncle and cousin as good examples of fellow Mounties. “I love taking my family with me when I go back to the Mount for National Alumni leaders meetings, reunions and other events.” Mike said. He really feels like the Mount is an extension of his family and he wants them to get to enjoy it as much as he does.
