After earning a Masters of Public Administration from Morehead State University, Michael spent two years serving as a member of AmeriCorps with both the VISTA and State/National Program. Here he developed an interest in grant writing and working with non-profit organizations. After joining the College of Medicine - Sponsored Research Administrative Services (SRAS) office, he spent 3 years as a Grant Proposal Specialist. As a member of the SRAS team, Michael developed his skills in relation to grant policy analysis with a specialty in federal grant sponsors. During this period, Michael earned his Certified Research Administrator (CRA) certification.
