About Annie:

Why did you choose Graduate Entry Medicine?

The course is focussed on academic medicine within a clinical context, which really appealed to me because I’m hoping to combine clinical work with medical research throughout my career.

Why did you first try rowing?

I first tried rowing in PE class at school, I was ridiculously uncoordinated with two oars and really hated it. But I stuck it out and eventually came to love it.

Who introduced you to the sport of rowing?

Lachie Carter at St Catherine’s School, Melbourne

Where else have you rowed?

Rowed at St Catherine’s for four years, Mercantile Rowing Club for one year, Princeton University for four years and then Oxford for one year.

What are your proudest rowing achievements?

Winning the lightweight 8+ at Head of the Charles and IRAs for Princeton, and being in the 2022 Women’s Blue Boat.

Do you have a favourite Boat Race? Which one and why?

2015 Women’s Boat Race – the first year women raced on the same day and course as the men. And a clean sweep for Dark Blue.

What would winning The Boat Race mean to you?

It means enough to have brought me out of retirement.
