Steve Slowinski has been working at PYD since early 2012. He has a B.A. from Gettysburg College in a self-created major focusing on child development and disability, and a Masters in Nonprofit Leadership from the Questrom School of Business at Boston University.
Steve had a form of cancer while growing up, and that experience having a temporary disability instilled in him the desire to be an advocate and ally to the disability community. He has worked with people with disabilities for the past 13+ years.
In college, he spent a semester in Denmark studying their child care practices for children with disabilities. He has also interned with the child life team at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, and has volunteered for many years as a camp counselor and mentor to youth with disabilities.
When he’s not at work, Steve enjoys hiking and camping, video games, D&D, and geeking out over all things sci-fi/fantasy.
