Who is Steve McBride?

I am a Divorce Mediator and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (sometimes known as a divorce financial planner).  I am also building a mediation practice focusing on elder care and other senior issues.

While most of my divorce work involves helping couples work through their divorce settlement (both financial and parenting) in a dignified way, I also act as the financial neutral on collaborative divorce cases and as the financial expert on litigation cases.  For more information, see www.divorcefinancecolorado.com.

The development of my elder care mediation practice derives from personal experience as a caregiver for my mother-in-law when she had Alzheimer’s, as well as dealing with a difficult sibling dispute about the care of my mother after her stroke. This area of my practice deals with a wide range of elder issues, including housing and living arrangements, caregiver arrangements, financial management, estate planning, guardianship, elder care transitions and disputes with nursing homes and residential care facilities.  For more information, see my web site www.eldercaremediation-colorado.com.I am a Professional Mediator recognized by the Colorado Council of Mediators and Mediation Organizations (CCMO), a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, Member (and former board member) of Colorado Collaborative Law Professionals, Member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, a board member of Colorado CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and a member of the Denver and Boulder collaborative law practice groups.

I am a husband, father to Ian and Katie, “bonus dad” to Emily and Annie, grandfather, musician, and artist.

My wife, Jennifer, is a Vice President of Horan and McConaty (www.horancares.com) where she is Director of Grief Support and Community Education.  She is also the Founder of the Heartlight Center, a 501(c)(3) focusing on grief support and professional grief education (www.heartlightcenter.org).

I played rugby for many years in the UK, and upon returning to the US coached the Denver Harlequins men’s team and Cherry Creek high school girl’s team.

Before working in the mediation field, I has a successful career in management consulting, where I was fortunate to help organizations such as Black and Decker, International Paper Company, American Greetings, J. Walter Thompson Advertising, British Gas, Singapore Telecom, BAT, Sun Microsystems, National Westminster Bank, Allied Irish Banks, and the University of Essex. I started my management consulting career with Pittsburgh-based H.B Maynard & Co (one of the oldest management consulting firms in the US, if not the world), and was a consulting partner with Robson Rhodes Chartered Accountants and CEO of Aspen Management Consultants, both in the UK. Most of my work focused on how to improve the performance and productivity of people in organizations through better people management. When I returned to the US in 1999, I worked with what is now DeNargo Capital, a private equity firm owned by my good friends Tom Heule and Pal Berg.
