"I have met Krista Feierabend in the summer of 2003 when she was an intern in our laboratory through the DOE-PST (Pre Service Teacher) program. Although initially I was reluctant to take upon a graphic arts student, my opinion changed quickly when Krista started to work on our web site. Using her expertise to produce posters and drawings explaining our experiment to a wider audience was the right thing to do. Two of her posters, one explaining the anatomy of a cosmic ray shower and the cosmic ray experiment are considered two of the best ever made in the Physics Department. Both have impeccable presentation and communicates the science that we are aiming at. During the internship Krista demonstrated initiative and an incredible sense of group work. Although I am certainly not the best person to judge her artistic abilities, I can comment that her sense of aesthetics and composition are nothing short of an experienced professional. The challenge for her in the internship was to put on paper a difficult science subject where little or no examples existed. The outcome made us very pleased and it was a clear demonstration that any science endeavor has a lot to gain involving people of her caliber. I was very pleased to see her professionalism in conducting her work; always asking for input, listening to suggestions and criticisms. These are rare qualities in young professional. Krista has many qualities but her enthusiasm, positive attitude, and keen sense of humor makes working with her a real pleasure. She is the type of person that will contribute greatly in any group that she participates, especially making the group function in harmony. I have confidence that she will meet any challenge she will encounter because of her persistency and creativity."
