Meet Stephen Sevigny, MD
I was born in Providence, RI to Raymond and Grace Sevigny, the youngest of four children. We moved to Sarasota when I was nine, and my parents bought a small business called The Trophy Shoppe. With Dad’s eighth-grade education and Mom’s business acumen, and working from eight in the morning until late at night, seven days a week, they built the Trophy Shoppe into a landmark business. I learned hard work from them, and have never forgotten.
I attended the University of Florida as an undergraduate and medical student and met my wife Gina there. After we graduated from medical school in 1994, began our residencies during which we were both chief residents, and then moved to Ormond Beach to start our careers.
I joined Radiology Associates of Daytona Beach as the tenth member, and since then the group has grown to 24 radiologists and has five imaging centers in the Sixth District, employing over 250 people. I have been the medical director of Twin Lakes Imaging Center since 2005, and I’m honored to serve this year as president of the Volusia County Medical Society. Gina started her successful practice – Ormond Beach Dermatology – in 2001.
In 2012, I became a board member of Reunion Bank of Florida, a small community bank, which merged with National Bank of Commerce in 2015. Unlike large national banks, community banks focus on the needs of local people and businesses. I remain on the Board of National Bank of Commerce, committed to small businesses.
We have three children. Stephen Jr. is a sophomore at the University of Florida. Elizabeth has a genetic disorder – Phelan-McDermid Syndrome – which causes significant mental and physical disabilities. She attends Seabreeze High School in the Exceptional Student Education program. Kate attends Ormond Beach Middle School and is active in sports.
With Elizabeth’s disabilities, we became active in the Easter Seals of Volusia and Flagler counties. I have been medical director for Easter Seals since 2015 and on the Board since 2012. Last year, we started the Elizabeth Sevigny scholarship program, to give $1,000 to a graduating senior who either assists or is going into Special Education teaching.
