Growing up in the small logging community of Princeton Maine, Michael spent the years after high school working in the paper mill industry with his father as a crane operator. Eventually Michael earned his Bachelors degree in Public Administration. The father of two daughters, he is also an avid fitness enthusiast and hiker.
While finishing her BS degree in Healthcare studies, Ravon joined VOANNE a year and a half ago to help open their Intensive Residential Treatment Behavior Health Program.
