Steve came to Berwick Academy in the fall of 2020. Prior to joining the BA faculty, he served as Associate Director of College Counseling at Phillips Andover Academy, where he worked with hundreds of students as they navigated the college admission experience. At Andover, Steve oversaw special interest programming for prospective college student-athletes as well as those interested in pursuing international education opportunities; he also facilitated essay writing, financial aid, and interview workshops. Additionally, he served as the school's NCAA liaison and was a member of numerous college counseling organizations. From 2003-2006, Steve worked in the Colgate University Admission Office where he coordinated the University's admitted student and overnight visit programs, co-coordinated international application review, and co-facilitated mock application review workshops for prospective students. For Steve, partnering with a wide variety of learners with various interests is an aspect of his work for which he is most grateful. When not in the college counseling office, Steve can likely be found on the ice coaching the boys' varsity ice hockey team.
