Originally from Fremont, California, Stephanie Yim graduated pre-med from U.C. Berkeley in 2007 with a B.A. in Psychology. Though a swimmer at heart, she spent the first year at Cal rowing lightweight crew until she grew tired of 5 a.m. workouts, quit, and picked up swimming again at Spieker Pool.
In 2007, previous SCAM head coach Kevin Williams recruited her as an evening coach and she has been with the team ever since. When not swimming Stephanie can be found either in a pilates studio or munching on cookies. She is currently trying to find a way to do both simultaneously.
