When we trust our teachers and work collaboratively with them, everyone wins! I knew then that parent engagement was a huge part of student success. Let’s make sure teachers, students and parents are all on the same team. I’d be honored to have your vote!

Michael's Family

Michael & Jennifer have two children who graduated from Freedom High School in Orange County and are currently in college. One is a graduate student at Saint Leo University studying Computer Science, while the other is a senior at UCF's College of Engineering. Parent engagement in college and career planning is one of Michael's greatest passions!


During his free time, Michael enjoys state and national parks, football, fishing, and snow skiing. He is always up for a new adventure!

Trained & Qualified

Michael holds a Doctorate of Education in Higher Education from Nova Southeastern University, attended graduate school at Florida State University and completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Central Florida. Go Knights!
