Personal… Born May 23, 1994 in Chicago… daughter of Alan & Ann Boffice… winner of the University of Iowa National Scholar award… business analytics and information systems majors.

Why Iowa… I am the first of three siblings to go out of state for college and I received direct admission to the Tippie College of Business.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… Being able to see constant improvement day by day and trying new things every time you get on a boat.

What made you want to become a rower… I watched the team last year practice on the river while I studied. When the e-mail came around for walk-ons I took the opportunity to try it out realizing I missed doing sports during my freshman year.
