2014-15…Did not see action.

Before Iowa… Academic all conference for swimming from 2011 to 2013… team conference champions in the 100 backstroke, 200 freestyle and 200 individual medley from 2011 to 2013… member of the speech and debate club… and graduated Cum Lada.

Personal…Born November 20, 1995… daughter of Brian and Michelle Kareis… International Relations and Pre Law double major.

Why Iowa… I enjoyed the atmosphere of the campus and the opportunity the University provided to study and compete at the highest level.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… Rowing is the ultimate team sport. It requires the entire boat to work together as one in order to succeed.

What made you want to become a rower… I heard about a new local team through a friend.
