Stephanie has been fortunate to have had sports play an important role in her life. She grew up competitive swimming and downhill skiing (recreationally). As an adult, she started competing locally in running races and has completed 6 marathons, Ironman Canada, and several shorter running and triathlon distances.
Stephanie believes that involvement in sports is much more than physical health. Involvement in sport develops discipline, confidence, mental toughness, resilience, and grit.
Stephanie’s Dad was a true sports fan and Canadian. It didn’t matter what sport, as long as Canada was playing he was cheering them on.
Stephanie has over 18 years experience working in the non-profit sector. Her work history, plus her passion for empowering women to participate in sport drew her interest in getting involved with Grindstone
