In my 26 years on the Northwestern faculty as a scholar, teacher and department chair I have never encountered a more independent-minded, determined and resilient student. She has a sharp, clear mind, sets priorities, puts in  the time, collaborates with others in demanding yet highly respectful ways, recovers from setbacks and takes pride in producing first-rate final products.
