Favorite Sports Memory:
My first World Championships. The emotions were flying I was excited, scared, nervous, happy, and more. It was an unreal feeling, and a great experience. I look forward to future World Championships and hopefully Olympics.

If there is one thing I love as much as kayaking it is baking!! I’m always trying to give away my baking so that I can make more. My specialty is banana muffins.
