Hello! I’m Kim, a freelance researcher and the owner of Qualitas Research Inc. I’m an experienced social researcher, with more than 20 years of professional experience in health, social services and education. I’m a credentialed evaluator with the Canadian Evaluation Society, and the holder of a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and postgraduate qualifications in social sciences and research methods.
I set up my freelance business in 2013, after more than a decade of doing research in non-profit, public and higher education sectors. Most recently I was Senior Researcher in the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences at Leeds Beckett University. Since becoming freelance, I’ve completed research projects for numerous organizations, including universities, health authorities, government departments, small non profits and national charities.
