Janet worked for me as a consultant researcher on a variety of projects at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. In summary, Janet is a world-class researcher who can analyze data and express complex findings with thoroughness and clarity. With the highest degree of anticipatory self guidance, Janet tackles the most complex of research topics and issues. And she can move across a broad spectrum of topics and integrative issues with ease. This ability, combined with a high level of creative problem solving, makes her a highly valuable asset on any research team. Furthermore, she has the ability to meet tight deadlines, is an overall great employee and a pleasure to work with. Janet gets the highest of my recommendations.e.
Jan understands deadlines and has never missed one when writing for us. She understands the sometimes complicated material and is adept at breaking it down for the listener. Jan needs little direction when working and is comfortable writing about everything from taxes to real estate and financial instruments

Janet is an excellent writer and demonstrated it on a regular basis when we worked together at Dow Jones Radio. She had a knack for condensing often complicated materials, such as IRS rules and the financial dealings of various companies, into easy-to-grasp and useful information for consumers and investors. She also worked very quickly and often finished assignments ahead of schedule. I would welcome the chance to work with Janet again.
Jan is one of the most professional and savvy business writers with whom we work on behalf of our mutual fund and money management clients. She "gets it". She does her homework, asks intelligent questions and writes well. A pleasure to work with on any of her assignments - whether our suggestion or not.

Janet Brandstrader is the consummate professional. Her deep knowledge and careful research skills make for top-notch journalism---and easy editing. She responds clearly and quickly to queries. An added bonus: Janet's sense of humor makes her extremely pleasant to have in the Barron's newsroom. I would highly highly recommend her in any venture.
