Research Psychologist

I develop each research study with my authentic PRICE formula of passion, rigor, integrity, creativity, and energy to get the right data to tell you what you want to know.

Dr. Joanne Broder Sumerson is a research psychologist dedicated to closing the gap between research and practice. Through her 20 years of experiences from working and consulting to a multitude of organizations, she knows that research is resarch, regardless of whether is for a dissertation, program evaluation, research study, or consultation project. She has consulted to many individual and team clients to help them listen and learn from their data through her authentic PRICE formula.  Her positive, direct, and get-it-done attitude will inspire, motivate, and facilitate your process of getting the right data.   In addition she will coach you through your dissertation and thesis study so that you will confidently and successfully get it DONE according to schedule.
