Steve's unique perspective on healthcare originates from his experience as a firefighter and EMS provider during college. Today, Steve serves as a volunteer member of the National Ski Patrol, responding to accidents on the mountains. First responders must be calm, skilled, and able to use whatever resources are available to overcome immediate challenges- and it's this "first responder" mentality that Steve brings to his work representing healthcare organizations on complex legal and strategy issues.
