Michael Hanrahan is the wizard behind the curtain at Crosspointe Educational Services. He has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York and has been gaining experience in business development over the past decade. His experience in education comes from his beautiful wife, Holly Hanrahan, and all the many years of being a teacher’s husband and joining her in her travels around the globe. This gives him a unique perspective on education and the needs of educators and students. His specialty will be in creating more opportunities for private and home school educators through Crosspointe Educational Services.
Michael is a great husband and a very hands-on father. He looks forward to teaching his children the business as they get older, but will relish the fun with having the little ones playing and learning every day at home at this point. Becoming a father was one of the greatest things to ever happen to him. An experience and commitment he highly recommends to any man!
