Who is an athlete you try to emulate?
Well I think Ashton Eaton is pretty great.… but he’s not exactly a rower. He’s all around one of the world’s best athletes though (decathlon).
What is your favorite class you have taken UW?
I haven’t taken that many yet but I took a philosophy class winter quarter and really enjoyed it, so now next quarter I signed up for an ethics class. Also I like the French classes here because they’re completely in French, no English!
What is your favorite memory as a Husky?
So far I would have to say my favorite memory was after our first ever early Saturday morning practice when my (now) best friends and I went out to breakfast… we ended up spending like $50 on two of us and were bonded from that moment on. Or dancing in the streets after the Seahawks won the Super Bowl!
What is your rowing background? What other sports have you played?
If you could be an athlete in another sport, what would it be?
Just started rowing this year. I played basketball for 12 years, track for 6, soccer for 5 and cross country for 3. Lettered in cross country (3 years), basketball (2 years) and track (4 years) in high school.
Track because I love hurdles and high jump… and most of the other events too!
