The Orcas Senior Center nonprofit is excited to welcome Steven Ziegler as the new Programs and Activities Coordinator. Ziegler’s education in sociology and extensive experience as an event planner make him exceptionally well suited to this position.

For the last five years, Ziegler coordinated and managed a variety of events for Foreign Cinema in San Francisco, ranging from intimate two-person marriage proposal dinners to large receptions of up to 450 guests. Prior to that time, he was assistant manager at two San Francisco restaurants. He holds a B.A. in sociology from San Francisco State University and an M.A. in sociology from the University of Memphis.

Ziegler tells of one of his proudest moments: Completing the 500-mile Camino de Santiago in Spain. This epic hike took him through four of Spain’s 15 regions, past vineyards and through the Pyrenees mountains. Also known as the Way of St. James, it is one of the oldest pilgrimage routes in the world. So excited was Ziegler about this endeavor, that he attempted it a second time, this time with his mother, brother, and sister-in-law. When an injury prevented one group member from completing the trek, Ziegler, on a whim, decided to visit Portugal. It was there he met his husband-to-be.
