Athlete Q&A
Why did you choose K-State?
I chose K-State not only because I liked the rowing program, but also I felt I benefited more from the academics and campus.

What has rowing taught you about yourself?
Rowing has taught me to give everything my all and if I do that, I can be successful!

What keeps you coming back to the team each year?
I think what will keep me coming back is the phenomenal coaching staff and the amazing girls on the team! They taught me so much more about myself in my first year.
