Why Iowa… They have a great pharmacy program that I will be applying to my junior year. I knew that Iowa would challenge and push me to be my best. With it being an public university, I knew many opportunities would be available to me to help me succeed.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… Meeting all of the other novices and continuing to be active have been a great experience. Rowing on the water allows me to take my mind off school and have another focus.

What made you want to become a rower… I was sent the mass email and thought it would be a great opportunity to meet new people and gain new experiences.
