Steve graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 1973 with a BS in chemical engineering, went on to the University of Rochester to study biochemistry and ultimately medicine, graduating in 1981 with an MD-PhD degree. In 1986, after completing training in Ophthalmology at the University of Rochester, he moved to Presque Isle with his wife Cheryl and their two boys. Steve practiced Ophthalmology in Aroostook county for 30 years, initially as part of a group practice and then in solo practice until forming a group practice with The Aroostook Medical Center in 2012. He retired from the practice of medicine at the end of 2015, but maintains his medical license. He has always enjoyed the outdoors in the area, hiking, camping, skiing, kayaking, sailing, and fishing throughout Maine. Since 1990, he and his family have owned a camp on East Grand Lake and have come to treasure the beauty and tranquility the region has to offer.
