Professional Relationship With Career Partner; Before Gender Transformation
Stephanie prioritized her Radio career more than anything else. Her love is radio, and if she didn't have her job as an entertainer and presenter, she would lose her passion. Besides that, the love life of English radio presenter is mysterious and doesn't fancy revealing about her dating history.
Although her real love life seems overshadowed, she never missed relishing her time with the working partner throughout her professional career. Stephanie's relationship with her career partner in Radio Crime, Jojo has been something people look up to, but they have limited their relationship to professional and friendship level only. She has enjoyed the best moment of her career life with Jojo which can be seen in several posts on her social accounts.
