"As a physician, I have seen politicians try to manage health care with few positive results. Physicians do more paper work now than ever before, at the expense of what really matters - spending quality time with patients. As a practicing mammographer, I see the importance of continuous care and believe that in the richest country in the world, we all deserve access to affordable high quality health care."
Steve brings hands on, significant experience from the financial sector as well. Steve served on the Board of Directors of Reunion Bank of Florida, and now serves as a Director at The National Bank of Commerce headquartered in Birmingham, AL. "As a director of a Community Bank, and now on the Board of a $3.1 Billion-dollar institution, I have seen governmental regulations in action, both effective and at times too restrictive. Community banks are the lifeblood of the economy and small business lending. Small businesses are the main job producers in this economy. I have been very fortunate to serve alongside some excellent businesspeople and job creators. I hope to use this real-world experience to 'right size' regulations to allow small businesses to thrive while not allowing Wall Street executives to make risky bets with our money. "
Steve has been an active part of the east-central Florida community for many years. He is currently the Medical Director of Easter Seals of Northeast Central Florida. He is on the boards of Halifax Insurance Plan Inc., Daytona Chamber of Commerce, University of Florida Parent & Family Leadership Council, and is the current President of the Volusia County Medical Society. He is also active in the Phelan- McDermid Syndrome Foundation. His 18-year-old daughter is affected with this rare genetic syndrome which has made her physically and mentally disabled.
Steve was brought up with the importance of family values and working hard, following your passion and making a difference in people's lives. He and his wife Gina now share those passions and values as they bring up their family of five.
"I have been a Radiologist in District 6 for 18 years. Gina and I raised our family here and love this area. I have been given the privilege of meeting and caring for thousands of patients throughout my career.
I promise if elected, I will work just as hard as your congressman as I have as a physician. I will work every day trying to make District 6 a better place to live for everyone."
