Why I Serve on the GSAS Advisory Board
My GSAS PhD gave me a flexible toolkit that has given me the credentials to pursue an unusually diverse and fulfilling career in non-academic settings. I feel an immense sense of gratitude for that. Now that the GSAS is elevating the importance of preparing doctoral students for careers outside the academy, I am honored to be part of the thinking that is driving important changes in academic culture.
