Steve has been a resident of Bolivar since moving to the Eastern Panhandle nearly ten years ago to work for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in Harpers Ferry where he was responsible for managing the internal workings of the organization as chief operating officer. An alumnus of M.I.T. and Stanford University, Steve has extensive experience in operations and manufacturing. He returned to the for-profit sector in 2014 as a business consultant, focusing on financing and organizational management of early stage ventures in energy and water. Steve was introduced to PVAS and its extensive offering of adult programs by his life partner, Lisa, an enthusiastic birder who was inspired by Birding 101. He looks forward to bringing a business acumen and a love for nature and the outdoors to the board.
