Mike's experience in healthcare spans more than 25 years and includes service as social worker, counselor, health information management director, and compliance/privacy auditor. It all started when he left a 14-year stint in television production to earn a master’s degree in psychology. He feels blessed to be part of the La Hacienda team. “They are an incredible group of people. Every one of them, regardless of what they do, helps carry out a recovery program that encompasses body, mind, and spirit.” Mike and his wife moved to the Hill Country to be closer to their children and grandchildren. As “Papa,” he enjoys spending time with them, as well as tackling home improvement projects, watching movies, and exploring the region.
