Katherine Hughes

Editorial Assistant

“I grew up obsessed with media - starting with disney movies, then cartoon network, then British tv shows, and now Netflix and social media content. I’m almost done with my Bachelors in Journalism with an emphasis in Convergence Multimedia Producing. That basically means I love producing and editing any kind of media I can get my hands on! But beyond the office, I love dogs, naps, and above all else, pasta!”
