LCpl Stephanie Innes-Smith graduated in 2008 with an MA in French and Spanish from the University of St Andrews.  After a spell as a French teacher, she decided to pursue a legal career and qualified as a solicitor in September 2016. She is also training to be a counsellor and is a mediocre student of Russian and Arabic.

Steph has enjoyed many opportunities during her time with 5 MI Army Reserve, including language courses, battlefield studies and paragliding, and is looking forward to an expedition to Papua New Guinea in 2017. In 2016 Steph completed the National Three Peak Challenge for the Child Brain Injury Trust and the Yorkshire 100k for Blind Veterans.

In her spare time, she volunteers as a befriender for the Leeds Asylum Seeker Support Network and enjoys making clothes of dubious quality.  @icemaidensteph
