Could you benefit from some help with your information gathering projects? If you have ever spent time designing a customer satisfaction survey or collecting information to help you make a better planning decision, only to discover after investing a lot of time and effort that
you didn't ask the right questions
you didn't get the right information, or
you didn't know where or how to find the right information
then you know how frustrating it is to have poured a lot of time and energy into a research project, only to discover the results aren't at all helpful. Gathering, organizing, and interpreting good information and data takes time and know-how, yet far too often these projects don't get the time, attention, or expertise needed to do the job well.
Whether you need help:
Designing and managing client satisfaction surveys or focus group studies
Collecting and organizing data for grant applications or progress reports
Administering program evaluations and needs assessments projects

My Research Philosophy and Ethics I approach all research projects from a humanist perspective. What does that mean in practice? It means:
I identify and name the perceptions and values that shape the research process and encourage others to do the same.
I recognize and appreciate the consequences of word choices, data interpretations, and recommendations on clients' and other stakeholders' lives and well-being.
I maintain confidentiality (within the limits of the laws) and safeguard the privacy of information shared with me as part of a research or consulting project.
Please note that I do not take on research projects for undergraduate or graduate students.
