I am a student athlete who loves to work hard and tries to be the very best I can be in everything I do. I come from a small swim club that doesn't have many experienced coaches, but adversity has always made me want to work harder and be better. These challenges also make me very excited to swim for my local high school's swim team. I look forward to getting the opportunity to train and compete for coaches with more swimming experience. I love seeing good results after hard work but I also accept failure as lessons. I've enjoyed placing at the LSC level and have treasured my experiences being a part of multiple Team Iowa events, including placing at the Zones level. I look forward to continuing with my USA swimming career not only in my LSC but at meets such as Sectionals and beyond. I have always loved forming connections and being close with my teammates. Encouraging my teammates to work hard and be the best they can be is one of my favorite things about swimming besides my own personal success. I am willing to do whatever it takes to be the best I can be in swimming, track and in the classroom.
