Valeria joined Edge Research in January 2019. Before becoming a member of the Edge team, Valeria served at a local nonprofit that focused on supporting LGBT lawyers and legal professionals with networking and job opportunities. Valeria graduated from George Mason University in Fall 2018 with a major in Sociology. During her studies, she became increasingly interested in research methods, especially qualitative and quantitative efforts designed to explore racial inequality and education reform.
At Edge, she plays several roles. Valeria is a key member of the Field Operations team, working to ensure that the qualitative and quantitative data we collect accurately represent our target audiences of focus. She also assists the team with data analyses and quality control reviews of our surveys and data presentations for both our for-profit and nonprofit clients. She greatly enjoys growing her marketing research skillset, learning Edge’s methodology and practices, and working with such a great team.
In her free time, she enjoys digging for new music, supporting her local DJ and producer friends, and sewing her own clothes.
