Michael E. Graham II, DVM, MBA
Experience financial resources directed by your values and toward your goals.
Michael manages the financial strategies of his clients to help them reach their financial aspirations. He enjoys working with individuals in veterinary medicine, agriculture producers, and medical professionals as they navigate their route to financial freedom. Using the full resources of the North Star specialist team, he advocates for the best interests of all his clients.
Michael is a native of New Orleans, LA. For his undergraduate career, he pursued a biological sciences degree at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. Following this, he graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree, also from LSU. Additionally, he is also the recipient of an MBA from Loyola University in New Orleans.
After completing his education, Michael became an actively practicing veterinary professional and has continued to practice in a clinical capacity for over 10 years. In this role, he participates in the entirety of his patients’ care, from routine wellness to advanced surgeries and critical care (when necessary). He also works with owners throughout the complete care process.
Now, he applies that same care to his financial advising clients as he helps them achieve their financial goals. Working with a desire to have a positive impact and to help his clients protect and grow their finances, he joins North Star as a holistic and dedicated financial resource.
“My ‘why’ in life is and always has been to help others. My own experiences, trials, and tribulations in my career infancy further fueled my passion to help others. More particularly, I want to help others walk through, bypass, or avoid the fears, emotions, and mistakes I made. I advocate for them to protect, grow, and enrich their futures and the futures of their loved ones.”
Today, Michael splits his time between New Orleans and Austin, TX, though he works with clients virtually throughout the U.S. Outside of his veterinary and financial advising practices, he enjoys spending time with his two young sons and black Labrador, exploring the outdoors, playing tennis, and working out.
