We’re so pleased to announce that Steffanie Lorig has joined SVC as co-director alongside long-time co-directors, Linda Hunt and Larry Asher. Steffanie comes to SVC with more than 20 years of experience serving as the founder and executive and publishing director of Art with Heart, an organization dedicated to helping kids overcome trauma through creative expression. She was also senior designer at Hornall Anderson for five years.
The reason for this expansion of SVC's leadership team is simply that we’ve experienced a huge amount of growth in the past three years thanks to our certificate programs and corporate training business. Steffanie will be coming on to help us manage, and more importantly, continue this progress.
Larry, Linda, and the entire SVC staff are incredibly excited about this next phase of the school. In Larry's own words, “Linda Hunt and I have known Steffanie for years — going back to shortly after she arrived in Seattle and took classes with us. We then followed her career through the formation and growth of the non-profit and social enterprise, Art with Heart. Through it all, we’ve been so impressed with her great business sense and — more than that — her strong sense of dedication and compassion.”
