STEVEN’S TIME AWAY FROM WORK:
Steven is married to his beautiful wife, Gina, and their family is rounded out by their Maltese/Shih Tzu mix, Lexie, who sometimes greets clients at the office. When not attending family or church gatherings, Steven enjoys challenging himself physically and mentally. He has competed in various triathlon races, completed the 22-mile Mt. Whitney hike in one day and run the Los Angeles Marathon. He also completed the “Alcatraz Challenge” in San Francisco, where he swam from Alcatraz Island to shore and then completed a 7-mile run that included a round-trip across the Golden Gate Bridge. All of these activities were life lessons that pushed the limits of his physical, emotional, and psychological strength.
