Personal… Born June 16, 1996… daughter of Kevin Koehn and Christine Koehn… political science major.

Why Iowa…The amount of diversity intrigued me, as well as the high level of academic excellence established.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… How everyone must work as a team to move the boat fast while keeping the boat stable. It is such a rush, not to mention exciting.

What made you want to become a rower… I never thought I’d become a rower until I went to the first practice; I immediately fell in love with the sport.
