She has a great talent for working with our subject matter experts and translating their ideas into truly useful surveys. It is a pleasure to collaborate with Robyn on our projects!” – Heather Creek, Ph.D., The Pew Charitable Trusts

Robyn has always been a great partner in sharpening our questions, bringing us innovative study designs, and seeking cost-effective ways of getting the highest quality data. Congrats to Robyn for the well-deserved promotion, and to SSRS for elevating someone who has much to offer.” – Craig Helmstetter, APM Research Lab
