Michael Maddox

Virgina Beach, Virgina

Michael grew up in the midwest and can’t remember not having a dog or two around the house. After spending nine years in the Navy operating nuclear power plants on submarines, he settled in Virginia Beach with his wife, Theresa.

They raised two children (now all grown up) and several Shelties. After the Navy, Michael pursued a sales career and held several management jobs before finding Trupanion. The company’s mission and the opportunity to build a business were a perfect match for a dog-loving entrepreneur!

Once the human kids moved out for good, Michael and Theresa moved out to the country, where they enjoy spending time with Gunner and Chloe — their Australian Shepherds.
