How has being a Chemistry graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"The Duke Chemistry Department, The Graduate School, and my Ph.D. advisor (Steve Craig) all helped prepare me for a rewarding and engaging career as a Chemistry Professor at a primarily undergraduate institution (PUI). My experience T.A.-ing and working with and mentoring undergraduates at Duke confirmed my desire to teach and mentor undergraduate students for the rest of my career."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Chemistry programs? 

"Never stop asking questions and never stop learning."
