I worked with Debbie as an REU student in the summer of 2011. She often took time out of her busy schedule to come down to the lab to help me build and align my setup. You could tell that she truly enjoyed being there and was happy for any excuse to spend time in lab. She was such a warm and considerate person and a wonderful advisor. She has been an inspiration for me. As I continue in my career I can only hope to have a fraction of the impact that she has had both scientifically and seemingly on every person she has known.
