Steve was raised in Southern Maryland. He grew up near DC but spent summers in the Blake Creek area of St. Mary's. He was always around animals growing up as his family had dogs and various other pets during his childhood (everything from hamsters, ferrets, fish and exotic birds). He started work in high school as a veterinary technician working for multiple practices. He then switched careers maintaining generators and diesel equipment. He now works in sales but is happy to be around animals again as a pet sitter. He joined Trails End in February 2022 and is Pet CPR and First Aid certified.
