Personal… Born May 12, 1995… daughter of Bruce Allen and Terri Davis… pre-med/health and human physiology major.

Why Iowa… It has a great medical program and I’ve always known I was going to be a Hawkeye!

My favorite aspect of rowing is… It pushes me farther physically then I[apos]ve ever been pushed in another sport or activity. I also love all the girls and the coaches!

What made you want to become a rower… I was ran down at my orientation by a girl with a giant oar….then I was run down AGAIN by a group of girls outside of Kinnick when I was going to Kick off at Kinnick for On Iowa. I figured I should probably at least go to the meeting after that.
