Why did you choose Missouri?
I absolutely love this team and the positive energy that comes with it. The nursing school is one of the best in the country and I love the campus during springtime. Jamie is an awesome coach, and the facility is amazing as well.
How has the program at Mizzou made you a better swimmer?
Since I have become a Mizzou diver, I have grown in so many ways. Jamie is a great coach and my teammates are always supportive and motivational. I love being able to dive in a state of the art facility and dryland area, too.
What is your best memory with the team?
Getting to go back to Texas for Conference and Zones.
