    Mike Coughlin, founder and CEO of ScriptPro, was born in 1945. He came home from the hospital to his first home, a garlow in Topeka, KS. Garlow = garage + bungalow.

    Housing during WWII was stretched to the limit and many people converted used “shacks” into livable spaces for returning soldiers. Mike and his parents, Pat and Patty, shared the garlow with Zip, the dog, and Zip’s fleas.
