What a way to wrap up my collegiate sailing career: I was just named to the 2014 ICSA Second All-Academic Sailing Team!

Thank you to my coaches John & Clinton, my professors and advisors, and especially my classmates and teammates for staying up late studying with me! Congratulations to my awesome teammates McKenzie Wilson and Katie Walker as well.
The past four years as a student-athlete at Stanford pushed me, tested me, and inspired me. My injury at the World Championships last September resulted in me hardly being able to get to my classes, let alone do college sailing. Not being able to sail for the whole fall season was definitely a blow, but my teammates, coaches, classmates and professors were so supportive. My time as a student-athlete has undoubtedly shaped my approach to Olympic sailing with regards to teamwork and time management.
