Growing up in Gardiner, Mike Choate, FP-C, CCEMT-P, followed a traditional educational path, graduating from Colby College in Waterville with a degree in mathematics. However, a constant interest in the human body led him to take anatomy and physiology classes in college, as well as an EMT class.
As he learned more, he grew to love the ever-evolving practice of medicine and felt a strong desire to help people during their time of need. He started work in EMS for Delta Ambulance in 1996 and soon developed a love for the autonomy of field medicine. He has been at LifeFlight since 2007 and enjoys working as the base coordinator for quality assurance and process improvement.
Mike is married to Stephanie, a Maternal Child Health RN, has two sons, and likes to spend his time off hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, and instilling his love for the outdoors in his boys.
