Steven Wexler

My life is surrounded by women.  I have 3 girls Mikayla age 19, Samara age 15, and Talia age 12.  My wife and I went to junior and senior high school proms together!   My children have allowed me to get back to many things that I love like coaching their hockey teams, skiing and sailing. Lately, I have been spending more time on my road bike doing some long charity rides and dabbling in the occasional triathlon.  I love doing mission work and for the past 5 years I have been going to Haiti on medical missions.  Mikayla has gone with me twice and this year I am taking Samara.

Little known fact: I used to coach college women’s ice hockey.

Future plans:  To have more time to get back into competitive sailboat racing.
