“One of the unique things about working at Purple is that research is fully integrated into the process for any client project. It is very rewarding to go from an idea or a question, to designing a research study, to analyzing the results and creating insights to seeing those insights activated in a client campaign.” 

“I have always been a curious person: always wanting to see new places, experience new cultures, and learn new ways of doing things. Working in research allows me to fulfill my curiosity and consistently be surprised by something I’m not expecting in a research result.”
