Justin grew up in New Jersey and began to learn the sport of rowing in 2008, his Freshman year of high-school. In 2011, rowing brought Justin to Michigan, where he joined the Lake Navy at GVSU. Justin enjoys sweep and sculling boats of all sizes, has rowed in twelve different states, and competed at the Henley Royal Regatta in England. Justin is excited to be working with the Novice Varsity Men as FHC Rowing continues to strive for new levels of success. 2020 will be Justin’s 3rd season with FHC Rowing.
Alicia Dickinson rowed for 4 years at Rockford High School, where she was primarily stroke, 7-seat, 2-seat and bow. She was part of the Varsity Women's 8+ for 2 years, placing in various regattas around the Midwest. She learned to love the sport, but took a break to focus on different leadership roles throughout her college and early career years. Alicia is beyond excited to be welcomed back into the rowing community, and is very thankful for the opportunity to assist with the Forest Hills Central Novice Women for Spring 2018. 2020 will be Alicia’s 3rd Season with FHC Rowing.
