Michael Paulus is an Associate Partner and Financial Advisor with North Star Resource Group's Medical Division. His practice focuses on working with physicians, dentists, and their families to help them overcome the financial challenges that are unique to their chosen careers.
Michael likes to take a holistic approach and focuses on each client’s unique set of goals and values. Michael has a national practice, and currently works with several hundred clients across the country. Knowing that many of the most important financial decisions are made before wealth is accumulated, he starts working with physicians and dentists as early as their final year of medical or dental school.
Academically, Michael is a frequent presenter to training programs in Philadelphia and Salt Lake City. He is the Co-Author to the Physician’s Guide to Financial Independence and focuses most of his new publications to his ongoing column at Physicians Money Digest.
Michael is originally from the Twin Cities and is a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a degree in Finance. After years of traveling to seek out new challenges for his outdoor pursuits, Michael now resides in Salt Lake City where the best skiing and hiking in the country is right in his backyard. When not working, Michael can often be found challenging his friends and family to push their limits with a new route up or down the mountain.
