I do not follow a specific nutrition program, but I have an incredible mom who cooks homemade meals every day. She makes sure I eat well by eating mostly organic foods.

All of my coaches have influenced me so much. They are always believing in me and encouraging me during every workout and race. Coach Messer is so passionate and attentive to every detail.  


Shout outs?

To my DV teammates. They are so sweet and fun, and they have made me feel so welcome.
