Personal

Margaret was named Athlete of the Year in 2009 and 2010 at the American School in London and was All-Ivy League at Princeton in 2014. She enjoys baking, cooking, and knitting because she loves the creativity in all of them. Margaret also enjoys telemark skiing, snowboarding, trying new things & foods, and drinking coffee. She is a huge winter sports-woman and is only hindered in her pursuits by the fact that it takes away from much-needed erg time. She grew up a soccer player and ski racer before her family moved to London where there were no mountains for her to race down. She started rowing because her older sister was a rower, and she was in the market for a new sport. Her personal hero is her mom, Sarah, who grew up playing sports and took up adventure racing (with her dad) while simultaneously raising four young children. Margaret said seeing her drive and commitment in such an intense sport greatly impacted her development as an athlete, and she wouldn't be where she was today if not for her mother.
