Meet the Founders
Steve's journey of re-invention and transformation.
After graduating as an electrician from Windham Technical School, Steve's dad asked him to serve his country. Steve was stationed in West Germany and learned how to dish up 600 omelets for hungry platoons while serving as a US Army Food Service Specialist. Upon discharge, he partnered with a wild and crazy cousin from Northern New Hampshire in a start up business called Basket Buys. Steve learned to operate mobile showrooms and spent fifteen years servicing the floral and garden industry. He earned ownership, moved the business to Connecticut, and sold it a few years later.
This offered him the ability to take time away from the work world, and follow a vision he had as a child of founding a retreat center, focused on bringing more positivity into this world. He studied and traveled abroad, volunteered for the summer season at the Omega Center in Rhinebeck, New York, and that following autumn he studied holistic nutritional theories, at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. While attending the weekend classes in New York City, he not only fell in love with his studies, but also a beautiful lady from Florida. Steve and Shannon co-founded Clearpoint together, in 2005.
His curiosity for energy medicine, led him to being a Featured EFT/Tapping Expert in the Tapping Solution Film and a leading teacher trainer in EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). Steve also became a top sales leader in Isagenix, a film producer of The Calling, trained in Trauma Releasing Exercises and Sauna Therapies.
Steve just completed a year of traveling, one weekend a month, to study Ayurveda, at the Ayurvedic Center of Vermont. He is married to Shannon McCarthy and is a father of two rowdy tikes.
Shannon McCarthy is a visionary artist with a degree in linguistics and classical studies. She became enthralled with painting when she was just five years old and in 2006 made the decision to commit her professional life to the study and practice of classical and religious art. Her Art is throughout Clearpoint and doesn't stop with just paintings, her artistry has also found its way into the kitchen, which has blessed many of our treasured guests.
She is currently studying with Sandra Wakeen Fine Art and just completed a trip to Florence, Italy.
