I hadn’t been back to Scripps College since graduating 15 years ago – until last month! I had a great time re-visiting many of the places I loved, like the Motley Coffeehouse, and meeting old friends and making new friends. It was especially wonderful to see my research advisers from that time, Dr. Nina Karnovsky (Pomona) and Dr. Diane Thomson (Joint Science, now becoming Scripps-Pitzer Science).
Thanks to Scripps for the Outstanding Recent Alumna Award! My training and the community there built a strong foundation for pursuing my dreams – and starting to dream even bigger. I’ll make sure it’s not another 15 years before I go back again.
