Personal... Born December 22, 1994 in Des Moines... daughter of Lance and Pam Bricker... radiation therapy major.
Why Iowa... Being a Hawkeye has always been in my family and with the University of Iowa being the only school in Iowa with a radiation therapy program, it made the choice of coming here easier.
My favorite aspect of rowing is... Pushing my body to new levels. Also, being a part of a team and competing.
What made you want to become a rower... Coach Quoss was after me to try-out and my doctor told me that rowing would be great for therapy for my knee, so I decided to give it a try!
