In reflecting upon her undergraduate experience at SMU, she shared these comments. “Much of what made my application successful is because of what I learned in undergrad and the opportunities that I had at SMU. I’ve had a lot of practice and mentorship in fellowship applications thanks to Dr. Hugley-Cook, and it was the Dedman Scholars / UHP that put me on this path to begin with.”
