Stephanie was born in Penticton and lived in Terrace before finally settling in Prince George. She graduated from DP Todd Secondary and attended UNBC for her bachelor's degree. Throughout high school Stephanie competed in figure skating at an elite level, including twice at the BC Games, and was featured as the local talent when Stars on Ice visited Prince George. Stephanie is pursuing her legal studies at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC and graduated in 2016.
What Stephanie loves most about Prince George is the opportunity for outdoor recreation, especially Nordic skiing at Otway in the winter, and mountain biking in the summer. In addition to this, Stephanie enjoys fishing, skating, cooking, and spending time with her family, especially her yellow lab Finnigan.
