About Query Group

I founded Query Group because I believe reliable research is within the reach of any individual or organization.

I've been helping people find better survey solutions since 1991, coming from the tools and services side of the business rather than from within a conventional research firm. Because of this, I've been able to work with a wide range of clients, from first-time researchers told to "Run a customer survey" to elite consulting firms who needed a partner for their Web surveys. The surveys have been as diverse as the clients, from complex B2B market research studies, to a middle school's parent survey, to multi-national 360 employee surveys.

My goal is to make your projects run more smoothly, whether it's by taking on pieces for you or by equipping you with the technology, processes, and knowledge you need to feel comfortable conducting surveys. Because of this, you'll see the services and resources on this site are geared toward "DIY" surveyors, whether occasional researchers or consultants for whom surveys are a regular tool.

My academic background includes a MBA from the University of Washington and BS in Marketing from Santa Clara University.

Happy Surveying!

Ann worked with us on an accelerated project... helping us ‘soup to nuts’ in defining our research objectives, methodology, survey design and ‘out of the box’ survey promotion ideas. She was a very fast learn, interacted beautifully with our client, and truly delivered on all commitments... exceeding expectations in a very short time period.
