Big Red Well Wishes ...
"I chose Cornell because it was an amazing school. When I toured, I felt like I fit in. The track coach at Cornell, Rich Bowman, suggested that I try the heptathlon, which at the time, I had no idea what it was. He luckily saw my potential in something I didn't even know existed and suggested it to me. It wound up being the absolute perfect fit, kind of like how bobsled was the perfect fit for me after college. I had no idea that I could train for it or go to the Olympics until someone suggested it to me."
