After a 15 years of professional running, Stella did her first triathlon in fall 2019 and qualified for the 70.3 world championships. She was directly inspired to continue doing triathlon on a higher level. After a number of Age Group wins in 2021, she decided to turn PRO to challenge herself competing against the best female athletes of the sport. Her main objective is to reach her potential in the sport while making sure to stay healthy. Enjoying the process and having fun in training are key for her to improve to the next level. Next to training, Stella is working as an HR Manager in different startups.
