Why Iowa…On my visit everyone was super welcoming and I could picture spending the next four years on this campus and absolutely loving it.

My favorite aspect of rowing is…I love how this is the ultimate team sport. Everyone has to work together in order for the boat to move and no one can do it on their own.

What made you want to become a rower…I needed to continue playing a sport after an injury and rowing was the only option available at the time.
