Mike Kooman

Financial Advisor
Red Deer
Born in Central Alberta, Mike moved to Oregon as a young child and lived there for ten years. He returned to Alberta in 1975 and has remained here since.

After following his dad into a teaching career, he followed him out of that field into the insurance industry in 2003. In those early years, Mike worked with clients to protect their financial future through Life insurance and wealth accumulation. While he still spends time in these areas, his focus changed to managing the business when he became the head advisor in 2008.

In his free time, Mike enjoys golf, camping, playing music and spending time with family and friends.
