Hello! My name is Abigail Acio, though most know me as Abby. I come from Centreville, VA, just outside of Washington, DC. In 2013, I graduated with a BS Biology and a minor in Chemistry from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA, after which I took two gap years to participate in microbial genetics research before coming to Penn State. Forensic science has been a lifelong interest, and after graduation I hope to pursue a career in criminalistics and crime scene investigation, possibly with a federal agency. Otherwise, I enjoy spending my free time reading, writing, playing my instruments (guitar and violin), dancing, and crafting/painting.
