    I am a senior at UW-Stevens Point studying communication with an emphasis in public relations and a minor in vocal performance music. As the co-editor-in-chief, I write editorials occasionally and focus my energy into managing the staff and administrative work. Away from The Pointer, I am the PR Director of the UWSP chapter of PRSSA, a campus tour guide, work as a communication and marketing specialist and a social media marketing consultant for CREATE Portage County. In my free time (not much), I listen to a lot of music, learn songs on piano, create graphics and digital content, and blog. I travel when I can and like to think I am a good photographer (check out my Instagram, @i.am.anyon). Follow my social media platforms to learn more about me and my work!

    I am a sophomore at UW Stevens Point and have not yet chosen a major. I was recently hired at The Pointer as a photographer, which allows me to work as well as practice my favorite hobby at the same time. Other hobbies I have include woodworking, hiking and backpacking, and traveling.
