Beatrix has an amazing listening ear and honesty that I very much appreciate. My interactions with her always leave me feeling hopeful, thoughtful and energized. As part of my degree, I am taking a field essay with her and she came up with an idea for a weekly wellness check that allows us to not only talk about my academic progress but how to improve my mental health and general outlook on life as a way to grow as a graduate student. A big shout out to her! I truly appreciate her efforts and ethics. Academics like her are rare. Cheers, Beatrix.
