Share About Your Experience With Mike
Michael “Mike” Pauley
My name is Michael Pauley, or Mike for short. I live in Hampstead Maryland with my wife Barbara (an RN who works at Johns Hopkins), and our dog Pepper. I have worked in the medical industry for over 20 years. I am a licensed physical therapist assistant, I hold an assistive technology professional (ATP) certification, and I am a certified Prosthetist through BOC.
I have always been extremely interested and active in sports. At 56 I still routinely play racquetball, basketball, golf and attend karate classes two evenings a week. Remaining active has always been important to me, and one of the reasons I believe I gravitated to the fields physical therapy and prosthetics. I truly enjoy helping our patients achieve mobility once again. Having suffered several injuries in my life which limited my mobility for a short period of time, I realized how important it was for an individual to be mobile, that one of the things we most often take for granted is the pure and simple ability to stand up and move, and the freedom that affords us.
There is great sense of satisfaction achieved when a patient is able to regain that freedom of ambulation with their new prosthetic and I am always happy to contribute to that process.
My Dad always told me, if you enjoy what you do for a living you never really “go to work”.
My Dad is a wise man, and the older I get the wiser he becomes.
