Hannah Preston, Copy Chief

My name is Hannah Preston, and I’m a junior majoring in psychology and English. After working as a copy editor, slotter and assistant copy chief over the past two years, I now serve as copy chief at the DI. When I’m not being a grammar Nazi, you can probably find me people-watching in the English Building atrium, coffee cup in hand.
