"Mistakes are ultimately unimportant if the purpose of the quest is adventure rather than certainty"
Stef was born in New Zealand to a Scottish father and English mother, grew up in Toronto, and moved to Dallas, Texas with her Canadian husband all before settling back in the UK in 2010. Stef's talent and passion for sport were spotted early, and at 12 she was already dreaming of playing rugby on the world stage. But at 15, Stef was involved in a boating accident, suffering severe propeller lacerations. Her life was saved but her right foot was amputated. Stef's focus shifted from her sports to her studies, and she graduated as valedictorian earning a full academic scholarship to Queen's University in Canada to study biochemistry. While at Queen's, Stef joined the university athletics team just to see how fast she could still run. Upon graduation, Stef decided to put her plans of medical school aside and focus on her childhood dream of being a professional athlete.
