Michael Kehoe is the Board Chair and Executive Director of Johego. In these capacities, he is responsible for implementing strategic objectives developed by the Board of Directors.
While working on a water and sanitation assessment in Sierra Leone, Michael became interested in how to more effectively coordinate the efforts of individuals and organizations working in the public interest. By founding Johego, he hopes to streamline the collection, curation, and delivery of information concerning the availability and quality of social and medical services throughout the United States.
Prior to starting Johego, Michael worked as a senior staff engineer at Geosyntec Consultants, a multinational environmental consulting firm for which he helped design and implement a wide variety of groundwater, stormwater, soil, and soil gas remediation projects. Michael earned a BS with honors from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a MS on a full academic scholarship from Stanford University, and a professional engineering license in California.
In addition to his work at Johego, Michael serves as a volunteer board member at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul St. Louis, as a teaching professor at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, and as an officer in the United States Navy Reserve.
In his free time, Michael enjoys exploring St. Louis, meeting new people, and reading as much as he can.
