Three new employees have joined MFour’s team, bolstering sales, survey fielding and software architecture.

 

Solutions Executive Kristin Caiella joins the sales team, where she’ll contribute to growing our client roster by educating prospects about what they’ll achieve by working with MFour. Kristin has more than five years’ experience in the research industry, most recently as a Director of Client Development for Cint. She earned a Master’s degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Southern California, and a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Health Science from the State University of New York, Brockport. She also has an Associate’s degree in Massage Therapy. Outside of work, Kristin enjoys the outdoors (hiking, tennis, beach volleyball) and does regular volunteer work with kids, including physical fitness programs at a community center and a tutoring program for homeless children.

 

Vanessa Hernandez joins the Operations team as a Fielding Expert whose duties include ensuring that questionnaires submitted by clients meet standards to ensure a good experience for panelists. Vanessa acquired relevant experience as a student researcher at the University of California, Irvine, where she earned two degrees – a Master’s in Social Sciences (concentration in Demographic and Social Analysis), and a Bachelor’s in Chicano/Latino Studies. Vanessa is a mentor and education advocate in the Long Beach community where she grew up, helping young people stay on the path to opportunity through education.
