Why Iowa… I come from a long line of proud Hawkeye alumni, and I am excited to carry on the legacy. Iowa City is an open, accepting, and exciting city to be a part of.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… The indescribable feeling of unity that one gets when a boat “clicks” together

What made you want to become a rower… I attended a Learn to Row camp the spring of my senior year and loved the challenging and competitive aspect of the sport. The rowing program has provided so many opportunities I would not have access to elsewhere.
