Michael Grace I am a St. Louis native and have resided in St Charles County for 15 years. I graduated from De Smet Jesuit High School and from there went on to play baseball and earn my bachelor’s degree in communications from Lipscomb University in Nashville Tennessee. After returning home from Tennessee, I started my work career in sales at the Tile Shop in St. Peters and then Ellisville MO. From there I accepted a position at Express Scripts in the authorization department for three years.
I married my wife Tara in August 2018 and we immediately started looking for a house. We moved to Josephville Mo in May of 2019 to be closer to her work at SSM St. Joseph’s West Hospital in Lake St. Louis where she is a Family Medicine Physician. Going through the exciting process of purchasing our first home together is something I will always remember. The joy a home brings to our family is something I cherish and that is the same joy I want to bring to many other families.
When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time with my wife and our families, outside doing yardwork, or on one of the many great golf courses we have in our area.
