"Jennifer Dawson is one of the best writers I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She is the consummate professional: needs very little direction, provides backup research for all topics, works well within timelines and is able to handle the many 'bumps in the road' that often occur in custom publishing. She made my job much easier. She is an asset to any company."
President, Benjamin Publishing
"I have assigned writing and editing project work to Jen on behalf of my clients and have always been impressed with her professionalism, promptness and the fact that she is always a pleasure to work with. Jen is extremely creative, an excellent researcher who knows how to dig deep for information and relates well to interview subjects who easily open up to her. Whether it's researching and writing women's health articles geared to consumers or putting together complex clinical information designed for a medical audience, Jen takes the assignment and runs with it, always delivering topnotch material. I would highly recommend Jen for any assignment."
