Behind KRNL: Abbey Purcell, Digital Editor

It's always popping on the KRNL social media platforms, and we only have our highly skilled digital editor to thank for that. Responsible for all the fun "This or That" polls we post on our Instagram page and the BTS videos, vlogs and tutorials we post on the YouTube channel, the digital editor manages all of our socials and makes sure it's always an enjoyable experience interacting with your favorite collegiate lifestyle and fashion magazine (that's us!) online! Now that our former D.E. Lauren Suchanek has graduated and will sadly be moving on from KRNL, it's time we introduced you guys to our next digital editor, who we know will just as great of a job! Meet Abbey Purcell, our next digital editor!
