For this article, we aimed to get to know Lukas Steffan PA-C by asking him a few questions about himself:

Why did you choose to move to the PNW and what’s your favorite aspect of the PNW so far?

I chose to move to the PNW for the outdoors and the mountains, also to get away from the cold winters in Minnesota. I would say my favorite aspect of the PNW would be hiking in the forests and exploring all of the new places each weekend.

What moved you to pursue a career in healthcare?

I wanted to pursue a career in healthcare because I’ve always been a people person. I enjoy meeting new people and finding out about their stories while trying to help with whatever ails them and ultimately make a difference in their lives.

Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s at the top of your list?

I do have a bucket list, and the top item is to visit every continent (including Antarctica).

If you could choose an orthopedic superpower, what superpower would you choose?

If I could choose an orthopedic superpower, I’d choose to be able to heal bones instantly!

What “guilty pleasure” song do you sing when no one is around?
