Q: How and why did you decide to become a swimmer?

A: I started at a swim school and realized I really liked the sport once I started competing, I was hooked.


Q: Do you have any family members that are involved in the sport of swimming?

A: I have two cousins Lauren and Allison who were both accomplished swimmers throughout High School.


Q: What would you say is your favorite and least favorite event at swim meets and why?

A: Favorite has to be Butterfly, this is an event I love to swim, and I am usually in this event. I have always struggled with my breast stroke, it also seems to take the longest when you are waiting for your event.



Q: How do you prepare for a swim meet and what do you eat before and during a swim meet?

A: Usually I have a light swim practice the night before and carb load. Usually pasta. That evening. At the swim meet, saltines crackers, bananas and almonds.


Q: How do you stay motivated especially after a disappointing race?

A: Focus on the next event or on what I need to change or improve on for the next meet.



Q: Are there any other sports that you participate in and why?

A: I have played football and soccer but the sport I take as seriously as swimming is Kyokusin Karate. I have been studying and practicing this sport since I was 5. Karate and Swimming complement each other nicely.


Q: Who encourages you the most to perform your best?

A: Coach Jill! And of course, Mom and Dad.


Q: What do you like to do if you are not swimming?

A: Currently swimming takes most of my time after school most of the week. When I do find time, I like to read and of course watch TV.


Q: Have you thought about what your goals are for the future in swimming?

A: Short Term goal is getting my first A time. Longer term goal is Eaton swim team.
