How FWR has impacted your WMRC experience?:

“I have learned the essence of a nurturing rowing community from FWR’s involvement with the William and Mary Rowing Club. They have been a wonderful resource during my time on the Exec Board and a valued cheering squad at events like Colonial Erg Sprints and Rockett’s Landing. Their guidance and support has been extremely valuable to my college rowing experience, and I hope to stay connected with FWR and WMRC for many years to come!”

What does rowing mean to you?:

“Rowing is a a passion and an outlet. I can always count on the fact that the stresses and worries of the day vanish as soon as I get into a shell and row in synchrony with my boatmates. The combination of power and delicate precision makes it an art as well as a sport, which I find particularly fascinating.”

Rowing fact:

“I started rowing in college after hearing many friends rave about the sport all through high school!”
