Stefanie and her family have called Singapore home since they arrived at the end of 2004. Her three daughters are currently enjoying the incredible diversity of UWCSEA, and her husband is an alumnus from UWCSEA Dover. Stefanie is German, speaks four languages fluently, was raised in Portugal and has lived and worked in the United Kingdom, Belgium, France and Singapore.
Stefanie has a BA degree in Languages, and Literature with Politics, from University of Southampton. Her career took her to the EU Parliament in Brussels, as the head of cabinet of the EP Vice President, dealing with diverse Pan European political issues during the Maastricht times and other pivotal moments of the 1990s European political stage. She proceeded to go to London as manager in Global Corporate Affairs at the World Travel & Tourism Council, working with top global leaders in the Travel & Tourism space, before arriving in Singapore, post-SARS in 2004. She bought and has run and grown her own business in the food and beverage arena.
Stefanie is committed to working together with her UWCSEA Board Member colleagues to serve the school and all its constituencies and stakeholders, to further grow our College and its Mission, and to pay forward to those to come.
