"You never know what you'll face in the operating room. Every case is unique," Stephen shares.

Stephen joined the North Oaks Surgery Center team in 2010 as a Surgical Tech. In 2014, he transferred to the Operating Room at North Oaks Medical Center. In July 2017, he also began assisting in Endoscopy as needed.

A native of New Orleans, he attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Texas State Technical College in Waco.

A proud military veteran, Stephen served in the U.S. Army based at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas.

Stephen and his wife Ericka live in Hammond. They have a grown daughter, Carrie, and two grandchildren—Lane, who is 4½, and Wade, who is 3.

Away from work, Stephen can be found enjoying the outdoors fishing, camping or mud riding on ATVs.

”Stephen is a dedicated, reliable and versatile employee," affirms Becky Glascock, clinical nurse manager. "He has the skills needed to assist in all surgical services and specialties and often volunteers to cover on-call needs. In the intense environment that is the surgical theater, Stephen is a source of calm.”
