Hailing from the humble beginnings of regional New Zealand, Stephanie has created a place in theatrical culture, not as a stand-alone singer, but as a complete performer. Transforming any event or production into an experience, with her ability to communicate character and musical interpretation in a way that makes an audience forget they are in the theatre, or at an event, but are in fact part of a story, immersed in it's retelling.
Beginning her performing life as a dancer, Stephanie trained in Ballet, Tap and Modern Jazz from age four. She was employed as lead dancer/actor for the Emergency Broadcasting Company (NZ) with whom she toured New Zealand full-time for two years.
Becoming immediately popular with her local audiences, Stephanie enjoyed regular performances around the country, singing and performing in the country's best-known venues. In 2000, Stephanie chose to expand her exposure, and took up a scholarship to study at the prestigious Canberra School of Music - Australian National University. There she had the rare, and exciting opportunity to have her skills cultivated under the celebrated singing teacher Anthea Moller.
After completing her Degrees, Stephanie moved to Sydney, Australia, to pursue singing professionally. She has since worked with a number of outstanding musicians in coaching, including David Harper, Simon Kenway, Nicolette Fraillon, Andrew Greene, Renato Fresia-Verdino, Barry Mora, Sir Donald MacIntyre, Brian Castles-Onion, Nicole Dorrigo, Dr Elisabeth Pillgrab-Parker.
Stephanie has since developed into a very fine performer, and has proved to be an uncannily insightful interpreter with her consistently strong sense of style, musicality and attention to detail. Her flair and charm are irressistible.
