 Our Mission is
Serving Rochester in all ways rowing. From beginner to elite, the Genesee Rowing Club is committed to bringing our community together through the sport of rowing.

 Our vision is

Elevating the level of rowing in Rochester by creating an
inclusive environment with the best coaches and
equipment available.



Liana started rowing in high school locally for Pittsford Crew.  She continued on to Canisius College, rowing and helping to grow the team until it eventually moved from a club sport to division I team.  After graduating from college, Liana began coaching for area high school programs, including Mercy and Pittsford Crew.  She eventually came back to rowing herself, rowing and then coaching for Genesee Rowing Club.  Liana believes in focusing on technique first, insisting it's important to row well first, and fast second.  She wants her crew to know the importance of using their rowing flow to move a boat, not overworking the stroke.  When not coaching, Liana teaches middle school math, hikes and of course rowers herself.

Megan is US Rowing Level 2 certified and her coaching philosophy is focused on building a strong technical foundation. Megan works full time in performance improvement consulting but enjoys getting out on the water as often as she can in her single or with the GRC competitive team.
