Mike Kelley bunts his way to better coworker relationships (and a job)

 

Mike Kelley has always loved baseball. And it allowed him to have a special connection with his son, born four months early and now a thriving 15 year-old.

Mike is the Managing Partner at Wheeler Fairman & Kelley in Austin, TX -- his name is on the door! -- where he's a tax accountant who also does litigation support and business valuations. He graduated from the University of Michigan and went to work at Deloitte & Touche for a few years before moving to Texas. Mike connected with me on LinkedIn after I presented at an AICPA conference last year so it's great to catch up with him now.

After having their son, Mike's wife Kelli created Hand to Hold, a charity to help other families going through similar experience as they did.
