“When I first met Mike a few years ago we immediately had a connection,” said Julie Huttig. “It was interesting when we reconnected on the phone a little while ago, for us and for him, it all kind of came together. I’ve watched him and followed him. There’s something about him that I have a ton of respect for.”
