Why did you choose Hope College? Closer to home, the beautiful campus, and the ability to grow in and out of the pool.

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? And why? Iced coffee and energy gummies! Caffeine helps me feel hyped up and ready to race!

What is your favorite movie and why? Either Step Brothers or both of the Mamma Mia movies.I love all the songs and story lines from both of the Mamma Mia, and Step Brothers is probably the funniest ever made. 

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Remember to have fun!

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Luke 21:19 - "By your endurance you will gain your lives." I am a firm believer in the fact that everything happens for a reason, and this verse reiterates that saying for me.

Please list any service opportunities you plan to be engaged with this year: Both on campus and off campus. (i.e. Mortar Board, CASA, Dance Marathon, Boys & Girls Club).
