“I worked with Dr. Edwards as I was going through my dissertation process. There were periods throughout my writing that I was extremely frustrated and stagnant. Dr. Edwards would consistently talk me off the ledge and encourage me to continue to move forward. We would talk through my committee's edits and suggestions and determine strategies for improvement. I’m so grateful for Dr. Edward's support and mentorship throughout this journey. Dr. Edwards was instrumental in me completing my dissertation. I do not know what I would’ve done without her.”
