Megan and Amanda, thank you so much for your continued guidance and support throughout this process.  I have no doubt that I would still be fumbling through this project if not for the time, energy, patience, and ideas that you both provided to me over the years.  Your mentorship taught me invaluable lessons about the key considerations for designing and carrying out a research study and how to skillfully write a 100+ page manuscript.  Working with the two of you also demonstrated the importance of selecting a cohesive and complementary research team. I felt so fortunate to work with all of my dissertation committee members, as each one brought something unique to the team and they all made me feel supported.  Although my experience in the program was not without its ups and downs, I never had to worry whether or not you two would be there for me when I needed you.  I will always be grateful for your detailed and timely feedback, the occasionally tedious meetings, regular check-ins, and the champagne :)  Thank you both!!!
