What three people would you invite to a dinner party dead or alive?

Dolly Parton, Alice Roosevelt Longworth, and Lynda Adams (my great-grandmother). All 3 of these women pushed the boundaries society placed on them, encouraged being unique and self-confident, and have/had a wicked sense of humor.

What excites you the most about the work you're doing in market research?

I have always enjoyed listening to others’ experiences and stories. And I love that I can do that through market research. I love that we capture participants’ opinions and experiences and use them in research. One person’s story can make a difference.

What advice would you give to others wanting to enter the market research industry?  

This industry is filled with people with unique and different backgrounds. It’s like a melting pot of experience. There is a wide range of skill sets required. Even if you do not have the exact qualifications necessary, there is a good chance you have additional skill sets that will come in handy. 

Where can we find you on the weekends? 

Making memories with my husband, friends, and family here, there, and everywhere. I enjoy being outside, exploring NH and surrounding states. If the weather is nice you can find me getting some fresh air either on my kayak or exploring gardens and forests. On weekends when I relish in being a homebody, you can find me curled up with an adventurous book, a cup of coffee, and baked goods.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have two cats! We rescued a bonded pair of sisters about 2 years ago. They are gray long hair Maine Coon mixes. Luna and Bellatrix enjoy taking naps, harassing us about snack time, and watching live bird videos on YouTube.
