Michael King


License Number: 734934

Ideally, what we learn to enjoy and leave behind for our family and friends takes priority. I am Michael King and I believe that you will realize my value to you while I serve you during your transition and into the future. This is a major change for you and those close to you. My aspiration is to grow our relationship while serving you as we make plans and I guide you during this vital shift in your life. In September 2020, with my Step-Father after a medical procedure, I commented, “Hey, Pops, I’m sure you’ll be ready to get out of here.” He gestured with his finger and motioned with his hand, one day at a time. My family and friends need comfort and security and so do you. As a 20-year Educator, I became familiar with most every dynamic between children and families, their education and home life. As an Efficiency and Labor Manager for a $70 million printing company, the opportunity to plan with just about every person from the owner through seasonal employees, spread the horizon of my capacity to work with others. As a Human Resource Manager for Concrete and Construction companies, I interviewed, trained, and cared for those building our homes and businesses in towns as well as the roads that interconnect. Overall, this plateau of exposure to managing businesses, as well as directly helping moms, dads, grandparents and children involved all my energy, and I gave my best when I could. I do have the motivation, resources and support to plan, guide and liberate you into the next stage on your path forward, and I am ready. See you soon!
