The best part about being on Cal crew is: The culture of the team. There is a constant drive to improve and become faster, and we support each other in that effort. Knowing that everyone is working their hardest is what makes it fun.

I chose Cal because: I wanted to join a team where I could see myself being successful and at the same time pushed to get better and better. I left my comfort zone in Seattle because I could see the coaches and the team would push me to my best.

My greatest achievement was: Winning a National Championship.
