Introducing....

Dr. Jody DeKorte!

Yes I did it!. I successfully defended my dissertation today!. I was very nervous, my committee members however, were totally supportive. I have one minor minor change to make to my abstract and that is it. As of today, I am officially

Jody DeKorte, PhD.

Thanks to everyone for your well wishes, and support over the past 5 years. It really hasn't sank in yet that I am done. I guess I don't know any better but to be the student. Now on to bigger and better things....or just to reading a regular old novel :)

Yea for me!
