Fun Facts

What I love about rowing

I love that feeling of connection with the rest of the crew and when you can feel the boat glide under you. You get to go so fast!

Favorite place to race

Lucerne, Switzerland. And Elk Lake!


In my spare time I like to put my education to good use and write research papers. But otherwise, taking power naps, spontaneous dance parties, and hyper-efficient grocery shopping.
