I started out asking Gwen to proofread a couple of PowerPoint presentations that I had prepared for clients. I quickly discovered that her market research experience, combined with her journalism background, brought considerably more value to the table than I had anticipated. Besides finding a couple of typos in those first jobs, she also made excellent suggestions for clarifying or simplifying some of the wording and concepts, demonstrating an obvious familiarity with market research terminology. I began depending more and more on her at much earlier stages in the preparation of my documents, questionnaires and reports, knowing I could trust her knowledge and attention to detail. Having her as a resource has helped reduce the amount of time I must spend preparing proposals, reports, questionnaires and other copy needs, which frees me up to get more of my other work done. She is very responsive to my time constraints and is a pleasure to work with.

I began writing my memoirs in 1993, adding commentaries over the next 23 years. I frequently went off on tangents from the timeline, which made for challenging editing before it could go into print. Not only did Gwen know how to handle those tangents, but she also enriched the regular text in sensitive areas of the manuscript, resulting in a logical sequence and richer content in the final product. With Gwen’s caring understanding, sound advice and writing talent, my book of memoirs is at last in print.

Gwen and I have worked together on qualitative market research projects since 2005. She is an extraordinarily talented recruiter, interviewer and researcher. She produces the highest "show rate" amongst respondents of anyone that I've worked with. Gwen possesses excellent communication skills (I love working with her) and delivers on-time, within budget, every time.
-Jenifer (Simson) Hartt, Principal
I've hired Gwen on several occasions to help with recruiting respondents for market research. She is very professional and always goes the extra mile to make sure the assignment is done well. I especially appreciate the fact that she brings her own creative ideas to the project and doesn't hesitate to tactfully suggest ways to improve results. If there's ever a hitch, she lets me know right away and always has a suggestion for resolving it. I recommend her for any recruiting situation in which you need an efficient, results-oriented pro to make sure the job gets done.
-Jenny Schade, Owner and President
