“Alix worked for Keiler as a Planner for Awhile when one of our planners was out on maternity leave. It was an engagement of several months and during a critical time for several healthcare-related projects for our top clients. Alix stepped in as if she’d been working here forever and helped us finish work as well as keep several projects going. Both the internal Keiler folks and the clients had confidence in her as a part of the team. I would use her again and recommend her services!”

- Lynn Taylor, President & CEO, Keiler

“Alix’s resourcefulness and energy in the face of significant time pressure made her an ideal research partner for us. She also quickly grasped the strategic goals of the project and delivered a very perceptive and highly actionable report in a tight timeframe. I highly recommend her intelligence and professionalism and look forward to working with her in the future.”

- Kevin Malloy, General Manager/Partner, Egg Strategy

- Tom McGee, Market Research Consultant

“We were embarking on some qualitative research for the first time in several years and needed a seasoned professional to coordinate and moderate the groups. We were referred to Alix and she fit our needs perfectly. She quickly learned about our business and developed a thorough guide that covered all of our research needs. In leading the groups, she built strong rapport with the consumers and deftly kept the participants on task so that we could obtain the insights we needed. We’ve implemented her recommendations and are rolling out a new campaign this summer. Throughout the project, Alix was collaborative, responsive and flexible. She worked with us to come in under budget. The next time we have research needs, she’s the first person we’ll call.”

- Thomas Oh, VP Business Development, Big Red, Inc.

I can always count on Alix to produce even more than is asked of her, adding thoughtful and intelligent insight that makes everyone’s efforts even better. She’s great with people – as a focus group facilitator and simply in general – and always a delight to work with. I highly recommend Alix, and encourage anyone to reach out to me as a reference for her and her talents.”

- Angela Fulcher, Founder/CMO, The Growth CMO

“Alix is the kind of strategic partner that creative people love. Innately curious, thoughtful and relentless in terms of finding new truths about a product, or an unexplored avenue for creative to investigate. The best compliment I can pay to any planner is to consider them ‘part of the creative department.’ Alix definitely fell into that camp.”

- David Nathanson, EVP, Chief Creative Officer, Zimmerman Advertising
