Personal Highlights

I am 5’5” but I have a 5’8 wingspan. My light weight in combination with my strength works to our advantage in our boats. I weigh less than most of our coxswains and pull like an open weight rower.
After a little over two years, I was awarded my Eagle Scout, being the first female in Williamsburg Virginia to obtain the honor.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I started rowing fall 2018 and I fell in love with it! I row all four seasons and thrive in the team environment. I think if I was part of a collegiate rowing team, it would give me a connection to both the school and team. Rowing is what I am passionate about, and I want to continue to do what I love in college.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Out of the boat, I am a patrol leader and founding member first all female Scout BSA Troop in Wiliamsburg. My job is to help organize weekly meetings, campouts, and a variety of activities. The all girl troop, as of May 2021, has 36 members I am responsible for helping to develop strong citizens and support them on their way towards their Eagle Scout. In the boat, I am frequently stroke seat which gives me an opportunity to lead the team. I also volunteer time at the boathouse cleaning and organizing team equipment supporting all of our rowers.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I pursue healthy athletic performance by diversifying my workouts. I am a member of the Lafayette swim team, I love to rock climb, and I am an avid rower. I also like to run, but I am happiest in and on the water. I also recognize a need for life balance with friends, school, family, and community in order to allow me to focus on my athletic goals.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I have joined the Scouts BSA local troop for girls and I have Earned my Eagle Scout in May of 2021. My project took over 150 hours and was done at my local VFW. I designed and built a US flag retirement drop box, a large bench for the members, and also landscaped around the grounds. I was an alter server at my church, and I visit residents monthly at a local retirement community named Spring Arbor. I love having the opportunity to give back to my community.
