My dissertation consultant, Deidre Rogers, made traveling to an unfamiliar land of doing a dissertation a pleasant journey. In looking back, I would have spent twice as long wandering around trying to find my own way without her. So much time and effort was saved as she directed me to add some here, cut back there and gave context to the areas of uncertainty. She was a constant source of encouragement, inspiration and insight. Why go in blind when you can have a seasoned guide at your side?
