I am currently in the process of completing my master's degree in Athletic leadership. One of the classes I am taking now is Athletic Coaching which helps me in the future when I need to start recruiting athletes for a swim team. I started when I was 5 years old and swam all the way through college. I swam at Westtown Aquatics all of my life and for High School I also swam for West Chester Henderson. I decided to attend Albright College because I felt it was the perfect fit for me. During my college years, my main event was the 200 back where I broke the school record in 2021 and then again broke my own record in 2022. In 2019, I was a two-time finalist in the conference in 200 back and 200 fly. In 2020, 2021, and 2022 I was a three-time finalist in the conference where I swam the 100 fly, 100 back, and 200 back. For my last year of swimming I decided to swim the 500 free, 200 back, and 100 back.
