Steve has been living in Prescott for 36 great years. He has been married to Kathy (Olsen) for 40 years and has two talented children, Kelly and Mark. He is currently a co-owner of Olsen's For Healthy Animals, a member of the Board of Trustees for Yavapai Regional Medical Center, and a member of the Prescott City Council, Sacred Heart Church, and Prescott Frontier Rotary. He has performed on stage since the late '80s, mostly in main stage musicals and musical reviews, the last being “Hooray for Hollywood”. For some reason, the stage brings out “big time ham” in Steve, and although in the last couple of years he hasn't had the time to let the ham out, he's looking forward to this opportunity provided by Dancing For The Stars. He's also looking forward to working with Dawn Wilson, the professional dancer who bravely consented to dance with him. They both look forward to bringing you the energy and excitement of their performance.
