This semester I continue my journey with the Albany Student Press as its current Editor-in-Chief. Previously I have acted as both the News Editor and as a Copy Editor. I am excited to continue the long legacy of the ASP, and hope to build our connections with the greater Albany community. 

I am working on finishing my undergraduate studies in both English and Communication at UAlbany. After that, I will continue my studies in Secondary Education. 

Originally from Hopewell Junction in the Hudson Valley, I've come to love the city of Albany and the stories it can tell!
