I graduated highschool from Bellevue West in 2017, and graduated from Creighton University in 2021 with a Biology major and Philosophy Minor. I have over 15 years of swimming experience and over 6 years of coaching experience for Bellevue Swim Club.

Group Goals: My goals for the Silver group is to transition into more competitive swimming (i.e. swim meets). This includes mastering Freestyle, Backstroke, Butterfly, and Breaststroke. I try to encourage a fun and reflective environment - where the swimmers are able to communicate why and how drills and main sets are ran.
