Why did you choose to come to the Coast Guard Academy? I've always loved being on the water and the Coast Guard Academy was the perfect opportunity for me to get an awesome education and further my skills on the water!

How long have you been sailing? How did you start sailing? I grew up in the cockpit of a Tarten Ten but began racing when I was seven in Optis!

What is your favorite thing about the sailing team at Coast Guard? My favorite thing about the team is kind of cliché, but its true! The team is literally like a family, and no matter how bad of a day you're having - they're always there to cheer you up.

What are your future sailing plans and career goals after graduation? I want to get into some bigger offshore races and maybe do the TransPac! My goals after graduation are to stay in the Coast Guard as long as it makes me happy. In 50 years, I want to be retired and living somewhere warm on a sailboat.

Tell us something that your teammates would be surprised to know about you. I've always wanted to major in art history and do interior design and photography!
