About Our Founder

Long before becoming a vocational rehabilitation counselor and employment expert, Mike Mooney worked different jobs, such as: construction labor, painting, landscaping, food service, musician, janitor, free-lance writer, etc. These experiences gave him critical insights into the real world of work.  After college, as a hospital mental health worker, he came across many unemployed patients. He sought to help people in a more concrete way via job counseling.  He went back to school for a Master’s counseling degree and received specialized training in settings which included: a university career planning and placement center, technical career support in a Concentrated Employment Training Act (CETA) program and the United States Job Corp.
