About Us


Sue Clery and Abby Miller launched ASA Research because we believe research — particularly in our fields of higher education and workforce — is essential for expanding opportunity, improving economic mobility, and contributing to personal and social well being.     

Together, we served as the senior research team at JBL Associates (later acquired by Coffey Consulting), a research firm that specialized in education and workforce policy. We have decades of experience developing intelligent, thoughtful research solutions for schools and colleges, districts and state systems, foundations and associations, and federal agencies.     

We work closely with our clients to tailor each project’s design to the client’s specific goals, budget, and timeline. Many of our clients have been with us for decades. And because every ASA client works directly with one of us, projects can easily be adapted as needed, and work flows smoothly and efficiently.
