"Jenifer is as kind, warm, and supportive as she is gifted. Her attention to detail, her creativity, and her ability to problem-solve are unmatched. She worked with me to re-approach social media from a holistic perspective that put the brand and the message first. Then with clarity around exactly what I wanted to say, we implemented specific, step-by-step strategies to achieve my goals. She taught me to put on my business jacket and take off my musician's leather jacket!
