Michael WALSH

Director of Operations

During his undergrad at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, he joined The Special Needs Activity Program (SNAP), a motor development, physical fitness and aquatic program geared towards individuals with a variety of disabilities. SNAP is where Michael realized his love for giving back and working with youth. After years of volunteering and obtaining his MBA, Michael vowed to use his education to giveback to those in need.
