“Becky’s science background along with her natural talents proved to be invaluable assets to tackle the job at hand. She had efficiently completed the five biographical sketches well ahead of schedule. Throughout her stint with Western Science, she was enthusiastic, hard-working, conscientious, courteous and empathetic.”
