I'm Michael Shampine, founder and president of MJS Associates, LLC, and this is my story.
I enjoyed an avocational career in the volunteer fire service and served with 2 different fire departments. I "worked my way up the ladder" and rose up through the ranks to the position of fire chief. After 29 years of personally rewarding service, I retired from the fire service.
Having earned a Master's degree in education, I was a public secondary school teacher for several years. I left secondary education to pursue and refine my sales, advertising, and marketing skills. I became co-founder of MJS Associates which sells custom printed and pre-printed products. It's not the products we sell that define who we are... MJS is really our customers! They rely on us to get the job done... to make their day go just a little easier. We focus on detail and getting superior quality at the best prices.
Presently, I volunteer by serving my community. I also returned to education and serve as an Adjunct Associate Professor with experience educating college students at 4 different institutions in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Of utmost importance to me is my strong faith in God and His Spirit guiding me in life. I value my wife and family, 3 adult children, and 6 grandchildren. I enjoy being at home and on the beach, staying active, eating healthy, keeping fit, walking, running, and biking.
