Last year, when Mike was looking for a way to get more involved in the community, he found out about Read and Feed at a Raleigh Chamber of Commerce event. Mike values the importance of education from a young age. He reads with his two daughters, Cameron (3 years old) and Janie (10 months old), every night, and they inspired him to get involved with Read and Feed.
In August, Mike joined Read and Feed’s Board of Directors, and he is currently the co-chair of our fundraising committee with Ben Swaney. Mike is excited to be a part of Read and Feed and for the year ahead. It's a big year for us- our 10th anniversary. He and Ben plan to bring a new energy and vibe to Rock and Roast, our annual fundraising event.
As the Director of Client Development for Greene Resources, Mike is constantly meeting new people with whom he shares the story of Read and Feed. His hope is that Read and Feed becomes a household name in the community and that he can spread the word among his demographic.
What is Mike reading now? Start With Why by Simon Sinek- a book about leadership and inspiring others to take action AND The Oceanfront Treasure Hunt by Denise Blum- a children’s book Mike reads with his daughter that showcases his hometown in New Jersey
