Coxswain at Princeton's Women's Lightweight Crew
Princeton, NJ (Sep 2018 - May 2020)
As coxswain, I led daily training, steered the boat, and provided motivational and technical commands during practices. I served as the liaison between my coach and teammates in coordinating race plans and training strategies.
One of the responsibilities of my role included training more than a dozen first-time and novice rowers on the fundamental rowing techniques to bring them to collegiate competition-level in under 8 months.
I have competed regionally in the East Coast. Races involved multitasking and strategizing under pressure during races.
Apart from the expectations of me as coxswain, I was selected by my team to serve as a Student-Athlete Wellness Leader where I served as a liaison between student-athletes on my team, administration, and faculty. I and the other Student-Athlete Wellness Leaders advised on issues that affect the health and welfare of all student-athletes and fostered community relations through projects and experiences for student-athletes.
Volunteer Coach at Special Olympics Rowing
In this role, I coached 30+ athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities using a range of rowing equipment and training techniques.
