I would particularly like to thank Dr. Patricia Condon, Dr. Charlie Leonard, Dr. Shira Rabin, and Bethany Smith, all of whom spent countless hours helping me put together and fine tune my application materials for the scholarship.

I am also thankful to my research mentors, Dr. Kathy Baumgartner and Dr. Stephanie Boone, who have contributed to my growth as a student and aspiring researcher.
