Please Introduce yourself
Hi I’m Michael! I live in Wylie, TX, which is a suburb of Dallas. I was born outside of Chicago and raised in Florida. I earned my business degree at the University of Texas San Antonio. Family is everything to me, my parents have been married over 40 years and have been a great example to me of love and sacrifice. I have two children of my own and they have been and remain my inspiration to push myself and succeed in any endeavor I pursue.
What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote is from Michael Jordan, it reads, "My attitude is that if you push me towards a weakness, I will turn that weakness into a strength."
Why did you join Future Family?
I was intrigued by the company and its mission from day 1, but I joined the company after meeting with Amanda (VP of Enterprise) and several others from within the organization. I loved hearing their own stories and wanted to share in the common goal.
How do you help your clients and other organizations?
There are a lot of options when it comes to fertility benefits, and many employers don't fully understand how the companies operate or differentiate themselves. I love helping employers make sense of this while explaining how Future Family's solutions are truly unique. While we offer options for fertility, we also provide comprehensive coverage that includes financing for out-of-pocket healthcare costs, making us a solution that all employees can benefit from.
What should families consider when taking a fertility loan?
Families should consider the positive impact that a loan provides, as opposed to the alternatives, such as credit card, 401K, or using up one's savings. One, the interest does not change unlike credit cards. Two you get extra benefits such as the Care team or discount on medications. Three, there is no prepayment penalty so it's really easy to pay off. On a credit card, if your balance goes up, so do your minimum payments.
What is your favorite part about helping organizations with implementing a family building benefit?
Hearing the excitement from them when they "get it". You can tell when that moment happens that they are catching on to what we offer and how truly unique and beneficial it is.
In your opinion, what do you think is that one "thing" that makes Future Family so special?
Our people. They are all wonderful human-beings, and without a doubt it’s the teams that make Future Family stand out.
If you had a few tips for a new patient just starting this process and researching fertility financials, what advice would you give somebody?
I would say do the research, if you look at the options out there, you'll find how great it is to choose Future Family.
