Please join me in welcoming Nicolina Schonfarber as ABMA’s new Government Affairs Coordinator.
A native of the Mohawk valley, Nicolina received her Bachelors in fine art from Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY, minoring in graphic communications before moving on to join the inaugural graduating class of Ithaca College’s ImageText MFA program. Prior to Covid-19, Nicolina’s projects included volunteering as the artist in residence for Gloversville New York’s Downtown revitalization initiative and co-founding PUZZAZZ Magazine, a quarterly publication spotlighting art and writing from the modern feminine perspective.
Nicolina lives in downtown Albany with her boyfriend and their cat ‘BattleCat’ and is studying for a paralegal certificate in her free time. Nicolina is most excited about learning anything and everything there is to know about the retail lumber world and how her background can be used to best serve ABMA and its members.
