Why Iowa… I chose the University of Iowa because it was a good distance from my home in Minnesota and because it was in my top three schools that I wanted to attend. I love the campus, the atmosphere of Iowa City and the Midwestern values held by the University of Iowa’s student body

My favorite aspect of rowing is… My favorite aspect of rowing is racing with the other women in the boat, and knowing we are all working towards the same goal.

What made you want to become a rower… I was approached by a member of the rowing team on my first visit to Iowa as a junior in high school. At first it was kind of a joke because she had only approached me based on my height. But when I came back for another visit the fall of my senior year I spoke with coach Quoss and decided to go for it.
