Samantha has years of experience as a participant recruiter and stood out as a particularly qualified candidate for this role. She has worked at places like Google, e-Bay / Pay Pal and Stanford in this capacity, and is already bringing her expertise to bear. When she is not working, Samantha enjoys going to the beach, cooking and trying new recipes, and spending time with her husky-mix, Sofia Coppola.
Samantha is filling an essential role on the Design Research team, working to find and schedule the right participants for research projects. With one person focusing on recruiting, participants have a single point of contact and are comfortably ushered through the experience of collaborating with us. Not only is she recruiting participants, but will also work to streamline our recruiting process and facilitate outreach to gather more volunteers to participate in design research.
