Born into a bilingual household, Stephanie was raised with both German and American traditions and has lived in the US, Germany, Austria, Italy and Australia. A former Division I collegiate tennis player, she and Sabine (her doubles partner, best friend and sister!) decided to leave their comfort zone in order to pursue two of their greatest passions: sports and travel. In 2014, the duo set out to experience the world, so far visiting 64 countries on 6 continents. Today she continues this exciting, active lifestyle as part of the Backroads family, living out her motto: "Dare to Dream; Discover Yourself; Delight in Life."
