Pierrette has been garnering accolades as a trailblazer in her field since she began in the industry. She won her first Employee Recognition Program Award in 2011 within her first six months of welding, on a job that many veteran welders stated could not be done. In 2014, she was selected to represent The Apprentice School in an article written for the 2014 issue of "R U Ready" Magazine. The article stated that only 17 percent of the school's students were female and quoted Pierrette as saying it was "empowering" working in a male dominated industry, where she was the only student of 157 in her class to graduate with the highest honors. From 2015 to 2016, Pierrette served as the only female representative on the director of welding's advisory team.
