When Addie began swimming, her favorite stroke was backstroke, but now her favorite stroke to race and practice is breaststroke and she also enjoys swimming fun relays .
Outside of swim team, Addie goes to school at the University of Vermont and is going into her sophomore year as an early education major and special education minor. Addie enjoys working at the Thundercare and Fusion programs at VUES, baking for her family, embroidery, reading, hanging out with her two sisters (pictured above), and swimming.
