Sandy was with me every step of the way, helping me choose an area to focus on, how to best cast a wide net of inquiries, and drill deep in preparation for every application and interview. I couldn’t have done it without her. She was always available and constantly checking in; her thoroughness was a lesson in itself. I saw her attention to detail and thought, ‘this is how you make things happen.’
