Before settling in Bend, OR, Stephanie was a bonafide vagabond in search of the world’s most beautiful places for cycling, hiking, and setting up sustainability projects. She guided for DuVine in France in 2012 and 2013, falling in love with the Burgundian countryside and fine wines. She returned to school to earn a Masters in French & International Development from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and subsequently worked for non-profits in Africa with women in forest-dependent communities. She now combines her passion for sustainability, local food sources, and play working in the outdoor industry in Bend and creating farm-to-table cycling experiences for locals and tourists alike.
