Bridget L., PhD in History, Claremont Graduate University

I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be completing my PhD program this semester if it were not for Dr. Rebecca Schwartz-Bishir. She helped me stay focused on my dissertation while being a mother, wife, and full-time employee. I worked with Rebecca for a year and a half. In that time she helped me get past my anxieties surrounding writing. She provided me with writing tools and strategies as well as relaxation techniques. Rebecca is a kind, compassionate, and highly intelligent person who empowers others to reach their full potential. I relied on her heavily throughout this process and miss her weekly Skype calls.
