Stephanie has always had a passion for Swimming and broke the British record for the 100m Backstroke when she was 15 years old (in non-disabled competition).

More recently, she set a European record to win the gold medal in the 400m Freestyle (S9) at the 2011 IPC European Championships in Berlin, Germany.

On her second Games appearance at London 2012, Stephanie won four silver and one bronze medal. Her achievements also included setting a European record in the 400m Freestyle (S9) with a time of 4:40.01. She also took two seconds from her personal best in the 200m Individual Medley (SM9). 

Stephanie competed in both of the women's relay events, including the 4x100m Medley Relay (34 pts) with Louise Walmsley, Heather Frederiksen and Claire Cashmore. One of the final events in the Aquatics Centre at London 2012, the Medley Relay was credited as being one of the most exciting races of the competition.
