Steph grew up as a competitive swimmer and caught the triathlon bug when she moved from Toronto to Vancouver 14 years ago. After spending countless hours in the pool, she thought life on a bicycle could be fun and running longer than 5km at a time might enable her to see the entire seawall in her new city! Truly, a beginner at heart and in sport.
Now, 17 Ironman finish lines later including Ironman Hawaii, several 70.3s, too many marathons and a few ultra marathons, Steph has decided to share her enthusiasm for sweaty pursuits with others. As a passionate and ambitious age group athlete, she raced with relentless joy and a lotta guts. In 2017, Steph took her pro card to remember once again the power of being a beginner in a sport she has fallen in love with. She promises to inspire you toward whatever your start line and believes that the journey just might change your life. You can also find Steph at Method Indoor Cycling on a weekly basis.
