I have been swimming competitively for fourteen years. I swam for ARA, Atlee High School, and Burkwood Aquatic Club. Currently I am on the JMU Club swim team. My favorite stroke is freestyle and my favorite event was the 1000 freestyle. Outside of the pool I enjoy hiking, cheering on the JMU Dukes, and eating lots of ice cream.
