Polly Keary – who is literally a rock star – is one of the most remarkable graduate teaching assistants that I have ever met. On a daily basis she goes above and beyond in service to her students. Additionally, Polly is an honestly curious researcher. Though in disparate fields, we regularly have conversations in which she leaves me encouraged and excited about scholarship. Whilst managing a family, she is able to dedicate herself to life, students, and her interests and is truly an amazing woman!
