Position: Port, Starboard Height: 5'7" Year: 2nd Hometown: Folsom, CA Major: Psychology

Hobbies: I love to read, write, and spend time with friends and family.

Why rowing? After rowing all four years in high school, I decided to take a year off from crew to focus on academics during my freshman year of college. I didn’t realize how much I missed rowing until I walked by the women’s rowing club display at Picnic Day and talked with them about Davis’s program. Seeing how excited they were about the team and how passionate they were about the sport made me realize how much I missed crew. Now, I am proud to say that those inspirational women I met are my teammates and with every 5 AM practice and Saturday race, I am falling in love with rowing all over again.

Why rowing? Coming to Davis, I was looking to join a sport. I wanted that sense of teamwork, belonging, and of course, fun! I am always up for a challenge and saw that no experience was required for rowing, so I thought I would try something new and sign up. Since then, I've really enjoyed being on the team because there is absolutely nowhere else I could get an experience like it and be able to share it with such amazing people -- my new family away from home.
