    I'll introduce myself as well!

    My name is Emily and I am one of the other Qualtrics Community administrators. I was born and raised in Michigan and also attended the University of Michigan where I majored in both Information Science and English Language & Literature. I've been at Qualtrics for a little over a year now. I started as a support representative, providing specialty support for the Employee Engagement and 360 platform, in addition to supporting the Research Core platform. You can now find me here, helping manage the Qualtrics Community and maintaining our Support Site at Qualtrics.com/Support.

    Welcome to the community! We're extremely excited to have you all here.

    Hazel here! I'm the Healthcare Statistics and Surveys Manager from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in Rosemont, IL (about 13 miles from downtown Chicago but about 3 hours away if you go by the way traffic crawls on our expressways). I am a Qualtrics Certified and I am the Qualtrics administrator for my organization. We use Qualtrics in our staff and customer surveys.

    Hey everyone,

    My name is Anthony, and I am the Programming and Field Manager at Communicus. We are a market research company, with a major focus on advertising effectiveness research.

    I am located in Tucson, AZ, where I did some schooling, though I never finished a formal degree. I am currently Qualtrics Gold Certified, as well as having taken part in the Market Research certification pilot last year at Summit.

    I have been working in the Qualtrics platform for almost 4 years now, as my primary job function. I specialize in finding ways to stretch the platform to its full potential in new and unique ways. I strongly believe that given the time and effort, nearly anything can be achieved when it comes to a Qualtrics study.

    My name is Katchen. I am from Omaha Ne. I am an analyst at Hayneedle and have worked with Qualtrics for the last year and a half. We are currently in process of building a CX program. I use Qualtrics to get feedback from our customers to help improve their experience with Hayneedle, with both on onsite and emailed surveys.

  • Welcome @HazelO, we're excited to have you!

    I spent four years right outside Chi-town (in Evanston) before moving out here to Utah so I can definitely relate to being stuck in traffic on the way into the city :/

  • Hi folks! My name is Kat and I'm based in NYC. I work for Kik, a text messaging app. I've used Qualtrics in two jobs now. We currently use Qualtrics to manage our panel through Target Audience and also to send out surveys to our users.

    Welcome, @KatC! Thanks for joining all the way from the East Coast!!

    Lillian from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. We use Qualtrics for many different purposes: research, program evaluations, teaching, 360 feedback, and countless other projects. I have suggested creating a forum like this since I joined in 2010 - finally there is a place where we can connect with others using the platform and also share our common questions and answers. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works!

    Hi All!

    I'm Rachel from THREE (three-group.com).

    I'm based out of our Raleigh, NC office where I work as an Associate, handling a lot of the day-to-day moving pieces of our project work. I use Qualtrics in my role for everything from survey programming to fielding to data manipulation, for a variety of project types (trackers, customer satisfaction, concept evals, etc.)

    I'm relatively new to Qualtrics (6 months), but have prior survey programming/field management experience on other platforms. I'm excited to share questions, ideas, and solutions with other members of the community!

    Hello. Anne from Bazaarvoice in Austin, Texas here. Bazaarvoice is a SaaS company all about user-generated content (like ratings and reviews and answers from retailers and brands) syndicated across a vast network of consumers, brands, and retailers. A little hard to explain, but I administer our client experience survey program in Qualtrics, and use Vocalize dashboards to share results and analysis internally. We also are integrated with Salesforce.

    We've been using Qualtrics for just under 2 years, and I am currently gold certified (a.k.a. Research Core Expert Certified). Nice to meet everyone!

    Welcome, @AnneF! Love to see the certification! Qualtrics is currently working on a CX Certification as well. I'm sure that one would be a breeze for you since it sounds like you live and breathe your CX program!
