Founder of NextStep, a nationally recognized non-profit organization

NextStep provides the opportunity for life-long health and recovery for people suffering from paralysis in communities nationwide. Today most of these individuals are deprived of the resources they desperately need to live long, healthy, and happy lives because there are no affordable or local options available to them. NextStep’s goal is to open NextStep paralysis recovery centers across the country to ensure an improved quality-of-life for this underserved population. In 1997 he graduated from the Georgetown University Business School with a degree in Marketing. He was also the Captain of the Georgetown University Division I-AA Football Team. He was the 1996 MAAC Defensive Player of the Year, 1996 Team MVP, 1st Team All Conference in 1995 & 1996, and an All-American in 1996. Kouri also holds the Hoya Single Season and All-Time Sack Record with 16 and 31.5 respectively.
