Anonymous, Ph.D.

I never thought I would graduate on time. At least that’s what I told myself before working with Dr. Christopher Bradley. When I first contacted The Dissertation Coach, Dr. Alison Miller listened to my story regarding my advisor who was difficulty to work with. I worked with my advisor for almost two years on my dissertation. With little feedback, I was not making any progress. I was running out of funding and the semester was almost over. All it took was one conversation with Dr. Bradley and I knew my luck was going to change. Dr. Bradley’s guidance and wisdom gave me the courage I needed to advocate for myself. I changed advisors with six weeks left in the semester and needed to write four chapters of my dissertation. This was a hard thing to do but it was necessary. Dr. Bradley’s time and words of encouragement during that transition was invaluable. His support and dedication demonstrated that this process did not need to be as hard as it was. Dr. Bradley analyzed and cleaned my data which made the writing process fly by. After all of my data was analyzed, I started writing. I never wrote that much in such a short period of time. Now that I was working with a new advisor things started to move fast. It took me 16 weeks to write my entire dissertation from the time I started working with Dr. Bradley to the day I submitted my final draft. Its been a week since I passed my defense. And I am still in a state of shock. Words can not express my gratitude. I am truly indebted to Dr. Bradley and Dr. Miller for their time and support. This was the best decision I have every made. The one-on-one conversations and strategic planning made completing my dissertation possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
