Stephen has been involved with Special Olympics for over 8 years, and is the Head of Delegation for Team Washington. Stephen first became involved with Special Olympics as his Cousin’s Unified Partner in bowling. He quickly found a passion for the Special Olympics Community, and is currently on staff as the East Region’s Sr. Manager of Sports and Competition. Stephen is excited to capitalize on the USA Games as a way to help grow awareness, provide better quality sports, and engage the Seattle community, and Washington state, to provide more opportunities to individuals with an intellectual disability. His greatest memories while being a part of Special Olympics have been to see, firsthand, the impact that sports can have on an athletes confidence, and the way they can inspire others when they share their story.
