Melissa Schwartz has been an immeasurable source of support, wisdom and kindness throughout the last year of my PhD. Melissa helped me recognize that the time and effort I was putting in was adding up and convinced me to keep going, tackling one small task after another. Our weekly sessions and her regular check-ins kept me in the right track and reminded me to stay curious about my own work but also to be gentle with myself. Melissa’s support completely re-shaped my PhD experience, from a place of fear and paralysis to a place of creativity and potential. I will be forever grateful.
