Why did you choose to come to the Coast Guard Academy? I wanted to be in the military but I also wanted to go to college. I also love the ocean and the missions of the Coast Guard.

How long have you been sailing? How did you start sailing? Not even a year! I started sailing during the fall 2012 semester.

What is your favorite thing about the sailing team at Coast Guard? The sailing team is like a family. It's nice to have so many different people to talk to. Everyone cares for each other and looks out for one another. I have made really good friends from being on the team. Also, I love the traveling! Regattas are so much fun and it's cool to be able to see different areas of New England.

What other activities/positions/clubs are you involved with on campus? I play on the club hockey team.

What is the sailing achievement that you are most proud of? I'm really proud of how the team did at both UNH regattas this year. In both regattas the team sailed really well and in one of them we won A division.

What are your future sailing plans and career goals after graduation? I think that sailing is an awesome skill to have and I hope to sail recreationally for the rest of my life.

Tell us something that your teammates would be surprised to know about you. I'm a former pageant queen.
