Mike was born and raised in St. Marys with his brother Ryan and sister Jamie. At the age of 16 Mike was the driver of a car that was involved in a single vehicle accident outside of St. Marys where he sustained a spinal cord injury that resulted in him becoming a quadriplegic. Mike has never let his disability stop him from doing everything an able bodied person would do. He was able to finish high school, go on to get a university degree in civil engineering, buy a house, get a vehicle modified to be able to drive independently, and has travelled through the United States and Australia.
He was very happy with his life and the accomplishments he had achieved, but he never gave up on the goal of one day walking again. It was 15 years post injury that he decided to attend a facility in California that was specializing in Spinal Cord Injury Recovery. After returning to London with the best intentions of maintaining his functional gains, it was then that he realized London was the best place for “Moving Forward” to be started. Mike’s primary motivation for opening the Moving Forward Rehabilitation and Wellness Center was to ensure that he and others can have access to the tools, facilities and support required for them to continue Moving Forward with their recovery right here in London.
In 2020, Moving Forward closed but like Alexander Graham Bell said “when one door closes another one opens” and this was when Mike’s brother Ryan ask him to join his real estate team of Mulligan Realty Group. It didn’t take long for Mike to say yes as he was excited to work with his brother and the great team of MRG.
