  • Susan is a fantastic qualitative researcher and moderator because she always fully understands the business/product question we are trying to solve, and she had a keen ability to elicit answers to these questions from customers.

    She is incredibly smart so can incorporate a significant amount of feedback during a focus group session and apply it. Ultimately, I know a study with her will be a success. I typically work our schedule around hers to ensure she is part of our working team.

  • Susan is a deeply trusted partner to our business, uncovering rich consumer insights, while challenging us to approach our research in new ways. Together we’ve tackled consumer insights, innovation, new product launches, and brand equity to name just a few initiatives.

  • New Leaf Media has worked with Susan for eight years on dozens of qualitative research projects including ethnographies, shop-alongs, intercepts, and focus groups. We’ve even conducted research on the side of a mountain, dangling from a rope!

    After the field work, Susan dives into the videos to create compelling stories for her reports and presentations, using the respondents’ own words to support her findings.

    It’s always a pleasure to work with someone so professional, organized, and thorough.
