Why Iowa… I have many family members in the surrounding area and when I visited the campus I knew it was the place for me.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… All the girls working together to make the boat go as fast as possible is such a thrill.

What made you want to become a rower… I have always watched the sport in the Olympics. I was at orientation and the team came up to me and asked me to try it out.
