Personal: Enjoys kayaking, water sports, dirt bike riding, sports, and video games ... chose to attend Alma College because "Coach Lintjer made me feel like I was wanted and that Alma would be a great fit for me. My first swim coach Caylee Hewitt was also a big part of me choosing Alma too, she swam and graduated from Alma and always spoke so highly of her years there. When I visited campus and met so many people who genuinely loved it and treated me like family from the start.
