Carrie Crotzer

Carrie Crotzer has worked for The Northerner since October of 2013 where she began writing for various sections, moving up through the sports editor and managing editor positions before becoming the Editor-in-Chief.

She is a senior journalism major minoring in communications with hopes of graduating in May of 2016. After graduation Carrie hopes to move on to a news outlet that is striving to change the face of journalism on the digital platform and constantly creating new ways to tell stories through multimedia.
