Mike Shepherd is an ambitious entrepreneur and successful owner of several businesses in Chilliwack. Earlier this year he was looking for something to get involved in and as luck would have it Erin Coghlan, the current board Chair, reached out and asked him to join.
When asked to describe the board Mike says the one word he would use is passionate and that it’s been an eye opener to see a group of people so self-less and committed to a cause. As he puts it “seeing someone love what they do- it’s contagious!”
He would like to start new fundraising initiatives to increase revenue for support services and MS research. As an entrepreneur, Mike likes looking outside the box and wants to develop more partnerships that link the Society with local businesses, as well as projects that would create on-going income.
Mike truly enjoys contributing to the community and has done so in many capacities, including being a mentor for the entrepreneurship students at Sardis Secondary School, as well as fundraising for BC Children’s Hospital. Looking forward, Mike’s motivated to take on a leadership position within the Society and jumpstart some new and exciting projects that will positively impact people affected by MS.
