Steve Zynda
Highfields Donor

Highfields supporter, Steve Zynda, has been practicing mindfulness and meditation techniques since he was a stressed-out law school student. Zynda had an idea to bring a mindfulness and meditation initiative to Highfields. He met with Highfields’ President and CEO, Brian Philson, to share his vision. Philson took the idea and ran with it.

With Becky Womboldt spearheading the program, Highfields’ staff is being trained on mindfulness and meditation techniques so they can teach clients how to practice in their daily lives. The techniques will enhance treatment for clients and help them cope with challenges.
