Steven is a lifelong resident of Michigan. As an Estate Planning attorney, he has extensive experience helping clients plan for the final chapters of their lives. He also has a very personal connection to hospice care. His father, mother, and father-in-law all died with dignity and compassion under the care of hospice.

I’m a Licensed Masters Social Worker. I completed my undergraduate degree at Central Michigan University and my graduate degree at Eastern Michigan University.  I became involved with hospice when I took a job as a medical social worker for a local hospice agency in 2015. After working for a hospice agency within the Genesee and Lapeer areas I have learned how much of a need there is for a hospice placement within our community. That need has motivated me to become involved in this grassroots movement to address this need which has led to the establishment of the nonprofit organization Hospice Homes of Genesee and Lapeer Counties.
