Amelia was introduced to the sport of rowing when she was a freshman at Drake University where she spent the next 4 years rowing in the varsity 8s and 4s all over the country. She graduated from Drake in 2006 with a Doctorate in Pharmacy and is now a Clinical Manager for Omnicare Long-Term Care Pharmacy. Amelia lives in Ankeny with her husband, twin daughters, her brittany spaniel and two bearded dragons. After a 15-year hiatus from rowing, Amelia joined DMR in 2021 and is excited to be back on the water. Rowing has so much to offer as a sport and Amelia is excited to give others the opportunity to fall in love with a sport that she is so passionate about.
