Personal bio: In college, I was a member of Wagner’s Division 1 swimming and diving team. During my senior year, I was co-captain of the team and we won our first ever conference championship. Even though my absolute favorite place to be is the beach, since moving to Richmond I enjoy hanging out around the river, trying new restaurants, exploring Virginia.
