Mike joined the Autism Services’ board in Feb 2022 and is currently the chair of the HR and Governance Committee.  He holds a PMP designation as well as a six sigma Green Belt in Lean.  Mike is the Chief Operations Officer for Shercom Industries, the tire recycler in Saskatchewan.  Shercom is heavily involved in creating play spaces for physical and intellectual disabilities by creating safe and interactive playgrounds for all children.  Mike was able to help Shercom partner with Playtop and Nike to be able to provide play areas using recycled tires and recycled Nike running shoes.  He is currently working towards an MBA in Operations.  Mike has 2 nephews on the autism spectrum and the opportunity to be a part of making life better for people like them is what motivates him to be involved.  The opportunity to help even one person in Saskatoon achieve a better standard of life through Autism Services is worth every minute spent. To help others live to their full potential takes kindness, determination and a big heart.  Autism Services is all that and more.
