Why Iowa… I’m actually from Iowa City so I’m close to home. I like the downtown atmosphere and all the programs they have offered here at the University. I figured I would stay here for undergrad and go out of state for graduate school.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… I like the team aspect of it. It is fun being on a team and working together.

What made you want to become a rower… It was a bit of a spontaneous decision. I wanted to join a sport to help me get out of my comfort zone and I thought rowing would be interesting to try out!
