Why did you choose to come to the Coast Guard Academy? I could not pass up the opportunity to truly challenge myself.

How long have you been sailing? How did you start sailing? I come from a family of sailors, so I’ve been sailing since I could start lessons at our yacht club.

What is your favorite thing about the sailing team at Coast Guard? The team is your family away from home. You may not always agree, but your teammates will take care of you.

What other activities/positions/clubs are you involved with on campus? Women's Leadership Council and the Environmental Club

What is the sailing achievement that you are most proud of? An 8th place finish at the Ida Lewis in the summer of 2010. I sailed with my sister that summer and had a blast, while learning a lot.

What are your future sailing plans and career goals after graduation? I want to take what I have and will continue to learn about sailing, and teach other kids about sailing and the ocean.

Tell us something that your teammates would be surprised to know about you. I am really interested in pursuing a career as a nurse after the Coast Guard.
