Stephanie grew up in the small town of Carmen, Manitoba until the age of 13. Her family then decided that moving to the city would be a better environment for her and her two siblings, so they relocated to Winnipeg. Stephanie was shy and quiet, but spending her teen years in the city helped her to come out of her shell. She played ringette and high school hockey as a goalie, something she has rekindled her passion for in recent years.
After high school, she met the love of her life. They spent time in western Canada until Stephanie found out she was pregnant. The couple then decided to return to their home province of Manitoba, where they currently reside. Stephanie is very close with her siblings who both live near by, which makes spending time together very easy.
Stephanie and her husband continued to grow their family while also building their trucking company. These days, her plate is very full with the schedules of her seven children. They spend lots of time on the road traveling to their various activities, and love traveling to tropical locations during the cold Manitoba winters. It was important for Stephanie to get involved with her community and was successfully elected as the chair for Local Urban District of Tyndall and Garson in the RM of Brokenhead. A big part of her mission in her new role is to get more young people involved in politics.
