Mike Gemm, ForImpact

Mike is a veteran coach with For Impact, tracing his roots back to 2003. Mike has a background in business, including several years in finance/accounting and an MBA from the University of Notre Dame. After graduation, Mike decided to transition from the world of business to the social sector as an AmeriCorps volunteer, where he truly had an epiphany that “he could really have an impact on the world in a meaningful way in this sector.” From that experience, Mike came to For Impact originally back in 2003 before rejoining in 2010, following several years in education at College Summit, an award-winning national organization increasing the college enrollment rate in low-income communities.
