My goal is to educate my readers. When someone reads my work, I want him or her to feel more knowledgeable, no matter the subject.

Sometime during his freshman year in high school, Stephen Lega realized his dream of being a professional basketball player probably wasn’t going to come true. Instead, he attended Western Kentucky University, where he studied print journalism. His plan was to be a full-time sports writer, but life had other plans.

He worked professionally as a journalist at weekly newspapers in Iowa and Kentucky. Through his education and experience, he learned how to explain complex issues to the general public.

“My goal is to educate my readers. When someone reads my work, I want him or her to feel more knowledgeable, no matter the subject,” he said.

Throughout his career as a journalist, Stephen won awards for editorial, column, news, and feature writing, for analytical stories and series, for photography, and for page design. He also was part of a two-person news staff that was named one of the top three newspapers in its class in the General Excellence category by the Kentucky Press Association during his last seven years as a full-time reporter. Today, he wants to use his skills to show patients where they can find a dentist who can provide the services they need.

When he’s not working, Stephen enjoys reading, listening to podcasts (his favorites are “The Skeptics’ Guide To The Universe” and “StarTalk” with Neil DeGrasse Tyson), and learning new things.
