Awards and Recognition

“Jennifer Pidgeon is one of the most clever people I have ever met. You give her a project and simply step back: she will go at it from every possible angle and several impossible angles, giving you a perspective on a project, program, or client that you never had. She is also a master of tone, adopting just the right voice for a project, be it a technical article, an email, a video, or an entire campaign. Jennifer takes her work seriously and personally, meaning that she never grumbles about revisions or moving deadlines. She simply does whatever it takes to make everything she touches the very best it can be. Plus, she is incredibly easy to get a long with and has a way of galvanizing teams with her sense of humor and sense of purpose.”
