I returned from maternity leave in the summer and jumped right into the intensity of defending my dissertation. On September 21, 2016 I passed without revisions – a rare event and more than I could ask or imagine. The credit for the pristine final draft goes to my committee members, who provided extensive feedback last spring and to my mom, Joanne Karram, who edited my thesis four times!! Perhaps the best part of the whole journey was eating ice cream in celebration with my dear committee members Dr. Ruth Hayhoe, Dr. Jane Knight and. Dr. Monica Heller.
