Human Resources Director
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
Steve grew up in Southern California, where he graduated from the University of Redlands with a Bachelor of Science in business administration. With two young children, he and his wife moved to Northern California, where he accepted a job at Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort as the director of human resources. While working, he also attended Golden Gate University in San Francisco, where he earned a master’s degree in human resource management. Following his graduation, he was promoted to vice president at his work the resort. Steve later relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he became the human resources director at Camel Rock Casino. Steve enjoyed the rich native culture of these pueblo natives in the area. He attended many of their traditional dances, which were held in the central courtyard of the pueblo community. After five years in the high desert, the stark bareness of the New Mexico landscape influenced him to move to Washington State, where he began work as the director of human resources at Swinomish Casino & Lodge. Steve’s favorite pastimes are exploring hiking trails in the Cascades, fishing at one of our numerous lakes, taking a scenic drive or playing golf.
