What is your role within OpinionSite?
VP, Custom Solutions. I oversee the executive recruitment team which provides support to both brands by assisting with response rate among panelists and recruiting non-panelists to increase feasibility.

What interested you when deciding to join OpinionSite?
I knew a few people from a previous job who were working at OpinionSite at the time and they all consistently indicated one phenomenal aspect of the company – the supportive culture!

Getting to do project investigation to support the teams – if a project manager is running into issues in the field, I love to use my experience to dig into not only the sampling strategy, but invitation communication and even programming to determine what we can do to improve performance and support the operations and sales teams to fulfill our client’s needs!
What is a fun fact, hidden talent, or hobbies you enjoy?
I trained as a classical vocalist (lyrico spinto mezzo soprano or lyric mezzo specifically), but I hated it.
