Q: Do you cross train to prevent injuries such as another sport?

Q: Have you ever gotten injured in swimming or experienced any pain that prevented you from missing practice or swim meets?

Q: Do you have a person or coach that pushes the hardest?

A: I am blessed to have 3 fantastic coaches that require my best every time I am in the water. Coach Bernier, Coach Bekah and Coach Robertstad are the best.


Q: What do you tell your friends when you cannot socialize because of practice or a meet?

A: I have the most amazing and supportive friends outside of my swim family. They understand the rigors of my practices and long meets that take a lot of time. They are always cheering me on and sending me encouraging text messages.


Q: Do you want to swim in high school or college?

A: Yes, I would love to swim in college. I currently swim for Duncanville High School and would love to go to the next level and swim in college.
