Working at Kinney Insurance has given him the flexibility and more time to spend with his wife, Bonnie and their two children, Morgan and Joey.

Depending on the season, you may catch them golfing, skiing, boating, paddling or simply just taking in the Vermont summers at either Joe's Pond in Danville or at Lake Bomoseen in Castleton. Michael spent much of his childhood with his family on the Lake and wound up graduating from the local Castleton University in 2002.
