Abigail Bulley, Justice Studio
I would highly recommend Naomi. On a professional level, she has been brilliant at pinpointing the areas that we need to evaluate whilst ensuring the process is not too difficult for our service users. On a personal level, Naomi is kind, helpful empathic person who would be an asset to any team or project.
Hannah Ashford, Managing Director of Early Nourishment CIC
I have worked with Naomi for many years on research and I have found her to be a very professional and dedicated researcher and project manager, who cares deeply about the participants in any project. Her research and writing skills are excellent and she can make project findings accessible to multiple audiences, from policy makers to practitioners, general public and the media, families and young people. I am confident Naomi will deliver any project at the the highest quality.
