As a Human Biology student adviser, teaching assistant and research assistant, I had the privilege of working with some of the best professors Stanford had to offer: Donald Kennedy, David Hamburg, Jane Goodall among others. I learned how to make things happen through coordination and collaboration, and in a lifetime of public service, have never forgotten the essential message of integration of the physical and social sciences. It was the best undergraduate education I could have hoped for.
