Class So.
Hometown West Liberty, Iowa
High School West Liberty

2014-15…Did not see action.

Before Iowa… Member of high school’s volleyball team her junior and senior year… made first team all-conference and Des Moines Register All State team her senior year… and 2013 Press Citizen Player of the Year for volleyball.

Personal… Born Sept. 9, 1995… daughter of Brenda and Jerry Simon, two sisters (Maddie and Cassie)… exercise science major.

Why Iowa… I really wanted to row for Iowa.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… How physically fit it makes you and the intensity of the sport.

What made you want to become a rower… I was recruited my senior year of high school but wasn’t quite ready to give up volleyball.
