Project Manager, Fortune 500 company, Ph.D.

I am speechless. Massive blessings and appreciation. Your work in NVivo is just ‘STELLAR’.

Physician Practice Management, Ph.D.

Your gateway (to final completion) has been a lifesaver!!

Assistant Professor, Education and Professional Studies, Ph.D.

Dr. Conger is at the top of her field with regard to qualitative research analysis, and especially skilled in the use and teaching of NVivo qualitative software. Her ability to expertly analyze and code data enables her to provide in-depth qualitative analysis at levels not normally seen.

Auxiliary Studies Program Teacher, Private School, CA. Doctor of Education

Karen provided NVivo assistance for me. At all times she was professional, courteous and patient. Her work was of a very high standard and communication was frequent. The work I requested was compiled very quickly, and I was kept informed throughout the whole process. I would not be able to proceed further in my work without her help. Thank you Karen, so very much appreciated.

Lecturer at University of Newcastle, AU, Ph.D.

Karen has provided consistently rapid and accurate service whenever I contact her. Not only has she taken the time to make sure we are equipped with what we need, just today she provided me with much-needed assistance that, in the short-term, didn't generate revenue for her. Undoubtedly, I'll continue to send business her way whenever possible. Thank you, Karen!

Professor, Instructional Design & Technology, Ed.D.

Karen provided a well paced instruction regimen specific to my data for my dissertation. NVivo is not the most intuitive software package and most YouTube videos have bits and pieces missing and do not provide questions and answers. I was able to import my data and perform simple word frequency analysis and that was about it. Karen made the application simple to understand by breaking it down into understandable segments. Coding, categorizing, and queries are relatively simple, but I would have never been able to perform cross referenced reports between Demographic data in Excel and Transcript data. Karen provided a calm learning environment using my own data so I could follow along on screen. For those needing to unleash the power of NVivo without struggling, I recommend Dr. Conger.

Senior Vice President, University of Phoenix, Doctor of Healthcare Administration

Karen was a blessing in disguise who mentored me in utilizing NVivo software to complete my doctoral research. We worked together over the phone in an academic manner so that I would have every advantage to realize success in my research outcome. I have recommended her to numerous learners and cohorts.

Professor, School of Business, Ph.D.
Senior Vice President, University of Phoenix, Doctor of Healthcare Administration

I had the honor to be the chair of Karen's dissertation committee at Walden University. Her dissertation won several accolades. During her own research she became an expert in qualitative analyses. I am delighted that Karen and I have remained in contact. I recommend Dr. Conger to all researchers who wish a superb qualitative software coach. Karen is one of the world's experts in qualitative analyses. She is the only person I know who is fluent in NVivo. Every student that has used her services raves about the results and the professionalism that Karen brings to the process. She is a true teacher so those who do use her service are able to defend their work and totally understand the why, what, and how, of their analyses. I offer Karen my highest recommendation.

Marilyn K. Simon, Ph.D., Dissertation Chair, Walden University

WOW! It looks like a beautiful and excellently done job! Thank you again for your hard work and dedication. I feel confident in writing now on my findings!

Educator, Educational Leadership Program Director, Ed.D.

This is amazing! A deadline was looming for me. Thank you for all your assistance and the timeliness of your work.

Educational Leadership Program Assistant Director, Ed.D.

Dr. Karen has been a steadfast support during my dissertation journey, more specifically, during the pre-and-post data collection phases. Often times working with new software such as NVivo can be extremely intimidating and overwhelming for a doctoral student/candidate. However, through Dr. Karen's excellent instructional skills and support, I was able to utilize the NVivo software to organize, code, develop categories, subcategories and finally themes for my qualitative dissertation in a fairly short amount of time. Considering I had 28 interview transcripts to evaluate and code, the task would have been extremely difficult to manage through manual efforts alone. After now competing chapter 4 & 5 of my dissertation, I realize the value of having a subject matter expert (SME) such as Dr. Karen to guide me through the nuances of such a sophisticated, yet wonderful program such as NVivo.

Corporate Director, Hospital and Health Care, Business Management Doctorate

I will be recommending your company to colleagues. This has been an incredible support.

Educator, Educational Leadership and Supervision, Ed.D.

I am well pleased with the reports. You have made my dissertation life so much simpler.

Secondary Teacher, Ed.D.

I am still sifting through all the documents. Looks great on the surface and I will be sure to contact if I need clarification. This was done with incredible speed! Very impressive.
