Steve and former wife Cindi founded The Sanctuary Spa in 2009. Over time, it was our team's dream to develop a medical spa to be able to provide more advanced skin and health care services producing the highest quality and natural looking results. This dream became reality when Ritual Med Boutique was officially organized in 2021. After months of planning and developing a team of experienced medical, aesthetic, and permanent make-up professionals, Ritual officially opened its doors to serve patients May 4, 2022.

Steve has spent his entire career in financial services, primarily as a certified public accountant and more recently a financial advisor. When not working, he enjoys time at home with his wife Dawn, golfing, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and enjoying life to the fullest.

Steve is excited to be part of the Ritual team. We have put together a great team who truly cares and supports each other. Each shares a single vision of treating every patient as the most important patient of their day, listening intently to their needs, and developing personal and trusted relationships.
