Michael Mauti | Speaker Biography
Michael's professional football career has been marked by success in every challenge he has faced. From winning the Butkus-Fitzgerald Award for best Big Ten linebacker in college to making game-changing moves for the New Orleans Saints, he has consistently proven his talent for the game. However, along with his achievements, Michael has also encountered numerous hardships.
During his time in college, Michael suffered the unfortunate setback of tearing his ACL three times. This forced him to take unwelcome breaks from the game he loved. Yet, the real battle began when he was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, a debilitating disease. This diagnosis forced Michael to re-evaluate how he could continue to excel on the football field.
Despite the immense toll the disease took on him mentally and physically, Michael developed the resilience he needed to push through. He underwent surgery to cure Ulcerative Colitis, and through this experience, he discovered the strength within himself to overcome adversity.
Today, Michael serves as the business development director at Seed2System, a company dedicated to developing CBD medicines to aid in the recovery of others, just as it has helped him. His inspiring story of incredible resilience and the ability to triumph over adversity is one that can motivate and inspire anyone in need of inspiration.
