This Is My Hartford:
Amy Albert
"The impact I hope to have is to help create and shape the future of Hartford. The Land of Steady Habits is sometimes slow to embrace change, but my perspective is, 'Tradition is the transmission of fire, not the worshipping of ashes.' I think about how the innovations of the past can inspire new innovators and how we can open our minds and hearts to the future—and future generations," said Amy Albert, Digital Marketing Manager, MetroHartford Alliance.
