Hi, I'm Dr. Danielle Pearson and I'm here to help you get through your dissertation!

I am a Southern California native and earned my M.Sc. in Psychological Research Methods and Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of Stirling in Stirling, Scotland. I have almost 20 years of experience working in research and statistics and have assisted dozens (at least!) of graduate students in completing their dissertations. I have 5 years of experience as an institutional research in higher education and over 4 as a full-time college professor specializing in teaching undergraduate statistics and research methods. I am passionate about using data and research to inform us as we strive toward a better tomorrow, and want to empower you as a researcher to fulfill your goals!


I primarily assist students with completing their results chapters (both quantitative/statistical analysis and qualitative analysis) and interpreting their results in terms of their research questions and past research. I also have extensive experience in assisting with methodology, editing, and formatting of dissertation documents.
