What do you hope to accomplish this summer with the Marlins?  I want my swimmers to enjoy swimming as much as I did at their age.  I hope to teach them the importance of hard work and dedication, but also what it's like to be a good teammate.  

What is your best swimming memory?
Winning 1st place in 100 fly at provincials for the first time. I was so nervous but I told myself to trust my training and leave it all in the pool. I was so exhausted on the last length and I remember thinking "just get to the wall". I ended up out-touching second place by one one-hundredth of a second. I felt so proud of myself and couldn't stop smiling after!

If you had one super power, what would it be and why?

It would be awesome to be able to time travel. I would love to be able to head to Paris for breakfast whenever I felt like it.
