Why Iowa... I chose the University of Iowa because of all the opportunities presented to me here. I fell in love with the campus right away and lived everything about it.

My favorite aspect of rowing is... The challenge that it represents and the therapeutic effect it has on me.

What made you want to become a rower... I am always willing to try something new and I like to keep active. I wouldn't consider rowing a traditional sport and I like that about it. It was a no-experience type thing which was the determining factor in my trying out for the sport.
