Stephen was born and raised in Elkhart and has been excited to be back in the area near family ever since he started his graduate work seven years ago. He and his wife, Anna, have two girls--a very busy 2-year-old and a snuggly 3-month-old. They also have a very energetic boxer dog. Stephen completed his undergrad at Bethel College (now University) in Mishawaka and graduated from Ball State with his PhD in school psychology. He completed his doctoral internship in a family medicine residency clinic and his post-doc fellowship in an internal medicine residency clinic. In his free time, Stephen enjoys cooking, playing video games, planning a summer church camp for children, and writing/hosting murder mystery parties. He has always loved working with kids and is so excited to be part of the pediatric care team.
