Why NJNYTC? As a New Yorker, NJNYTC has appealed to me for years. It has consistently been a dominant training group in the Northeast, and in my last few collegiate seasons, I was able to meet the team and coaches. Gags showed genuine interest in me, despite coming from a smaller Division 1 program. After learning more about the culture and resources, it was the obvious decision. Following the 2016 Olympic Trials, I made my commitment to the club.

Greatest Strength: The ability to remain confident on race day regardless of who I may be competing against.

Greatest Weakness: My sweet tooth.
