Phoebe Roe- Assistant Coach
Phoebe first started rowing with the Fox Chapel Crew Team when she was new to the high school during her sophomore year. She was so excited to find an incredibly warm, exciting and goal-driven environment on the team, and went on to row for her entire time at Fox Chapel.
After high school, Phoebe studied Psychology, English Literature and Arabic at the illustrious Kenyon College, and went on to teach high school English at Chalmette High School just outside of New Orleans, Louisiana (go owls!). When Phoebe isn't coaching, you can find her studying, as she is working to complete a graduate program at Carnegie Mellon University. Phoebe is thrilled to be back with her team and welcomes any questions you have!
