Steve is a charismatic and fun-loving Certified Athletic Trainer from Eastern Pennsylvania! He completed his undergraduate work at the University of Pittsburgh and earned his master’s in Human Physiology and Movement from the University of Oregon. Steve is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and has years of experience as a former EMT.
Steve’s passion for Dance Medicine began in college while working for Varsity Spirit during summer breaks. “I was put in front of an underserved cohort of Performing Arts Athletes that were training harder than most of the Division I Football Players I was treating.” Steve’s experience with UCA, NCA, UDA, and NDA camps propelled him into a role working with the cheer and dance teams at Pitt, Oregon, and Gonzaga University. This, in addition to his time with the Football teams at Pitt and Oregon, The Pittsburgh Pirates (MLB), and the NBA Developmental Academy in Senegal, has equipped Steve with an extensive and diverse set of skills.
Currently, Steve serves as the Head Athletic Trainer at Denver Sports Recovery (DSR), which has longstanding partnerships with Cleo Parker Robinson Dance School, Wonderbound Studios, and The Denver Center for the Performing Arts. DSR is an integrated health and wellness center located near Downtown Denver that offers various services including: Functional Movement, Corrective Exercises Chiropractic Care, Massage Therapy, Fascial Stretch, Acupuncture, Cryotherapy, Infrared Saunas, Hot & Cold Tubs.. and much more!
Steve’s charisma and love for the outdoors stems from his participation in the Boy Scouts, which has led him on hikes and adventures across the globe. Steve likes to mix his life experience with the skills he’s picked up from both his ATC and CSCS credentials, because he firmly believes that movement is medicine, and an advocate is sometimes all a dancer needs on their health and wellness journey!
