Years on the NLS team: 2008, 2013
Role: One of my very first projects at NORC was NLSY97, when I travelled the state of Florida as a field interviewer. My latest experience was as a field manager on the NLSY97 in 2013, managing the states of Texas, New Mexico and North Dakota.
I loved as an FI how we were able to gift the respondents wonderful tokens for their small children. I still remember the awesome Crayola packs that would keep the respondent's kids happy and occupied during our interivews.
I feel fortunate to have played a role as both an FI and an FM on the NLSY97. It is wonderful to see the project's successes from both sides.
