I’m a Dr.!!!


Definitely a proper blog post will be drafted, but I wanted to quickly let you all know that my defense went GREAT on Friday. I passed (woohoo!!!) with no revisions (double whammy!), meaning my committee thinks my thesis was great as-is and needs no additions or added experiments. I wasn’t expecting such a great turn out!

Speaking of turn out, SO many wonderful friends and family traveled near and far to be at my defense and I can’t tell you how much that meant to me. I think my dad said he counted over 50 people in the room. When I was presenting, I would just look from my family, to my best friends’, to my CO running buddies, to my in-laws, to my lab mates. They made me feel so proud.

I’ve been on cloud 9 since Friday, non-stop hanging out with my family and friends who’ve been in town for the weekend. I’m still with my best friend today; I get to keep her a few more hours before she flies home.

More pictures to come, but for now, enjoy these few from the big day!
