What are your pre-meet rituals? Eat a carb loaded breakfast, shake out every muscle possible, drink purple Gatorade and text/talk to my mom.

What is your dream job? Professional shopper or food critic.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Tie between Australia and Germany for the Germany Christmas Markets. 

What is your fondest swimming memory? Sophomore year of college at Big Ten finals swimming the 200 fly and seeing the entire team behind my block. After the race I saw that I dropped more time than I thought I could and was able to bring in points for the team. The best part were the hugs from my teammates! 

What does success mean to you? Success is finding what makes you happy and fighting for it. No matter if you win or lose, fighting for what you believe in or love is the ultimate success.
