Sara Hendershot played many sports growing up and tried rowing at Simsbury High School, where she was immediately hooked. She was recruited to row at Princeton University where her collegiate career peaked during her senior season when she was named Captain of the team, rowed an undefeated dual season, a 3rd place finish at NCAAs, and was named First Team All-America. Upon graduation, Sara turned down an offer on Wall Street to continue rowing at the elite level.
 
Fourth place finish in the 2012 Olympic Games in the Women’s Pair. Following London, Sara committed to training for another Olympic Cycle, but unfortunately was plagued with injury for almost two years. 
 
After recovering from injury, Sara shifted focus to staying competitive while helping others succeed at rowing, and she currently runs an elite rowing coaching program with her husband called Rowfficient in Boston. She is also a Senior Account Manager at SMACK! Media.
