Associate Editor, MDT

Welcome! I am the  new Associate Editor for Medical Design Technology (MDT)! I am a recent William Paterson University graduate with a degree in Communications: Print Journalism and minors in Public Relations and Psychology. During my time at school, I managed the social media for all of the clubs that I participated in and was the copy editor of my university’s newspaper. When I am not writing or editing, I enjoy running (okay, walking a lot), watching Netflix, reading, spending way too much time on Pinterest, and shopping!
