I first met Jeanette Friedman some 35 years ago, when she offered a most delightful presentation at the radio station at which I was working at the time. Since then, it has been my joy to work with her on a plethora of projects on a variety of subjects. She is a gifted and versatile writer, a discerning editor, a passionate advocate, and an inspired educator. Her intelligence and creativity are rivaled only by her incisive wit, and I always look forward to reading anything she writes.

Jeanette was hired by one of the founders of the company, Rose Mattus, to write the story of the founding of Haagen-Dazs, and all that went along with it. She spent a considerable amount of time going over the details, reviewing and re-reviewing every aspect of the book, including reading chapters to Rose when she desired. She incorporated photos and anecdotes into the account. Rose was incredibly thrilled with “her” book when it was done, and gave away hundreds of them. Many letters of thanks were received, praising the wonderful story and the way it was written. If you want your story written in a professional, enjoyable and very readable book, hire Jeanette!

Jeanette is a smart, hard-working, insightful and strikingly original thinker. She brings force and clarity to her articles and interviews, never takes no for an answer, and always delivers something more profoundly applicable than you expect. She is one of the most underappreciated resources of the 21st Century, and a steal at whatever price she’s asking.

Jeanette Friedman and I worked together on projects for and about Holocaust survivors and their children during my tenure in the Office of Survivor Affairs at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Her intensity and ability to really get things done were always an asset, and I am happy to recommend her highly.

— MAHLI LEE, FOUNDER, SACRED GROUNDS, AN AUSCHWITZ PROJECT. CORAL GABLES, FL.
Jeanette possesses a wonderful combination of talented, entertaining scribe and very knowledgeable citizen. Every word she writes resonates that duality: the concerned activist grounded in the wide scope of realities of the world and the storyteller sharing that passion and hope by weaving words emotionally provocative to the reader. Jeanette’s success is largely a consequence of the fact that ultimately she is always the humansmithy, in all its complexity, behind the skilled wordsmithy.
— ELLEN FRIEDLAND, PRESIDENT, JEMGLO PRODUCTIONS
I have known Jeanette for over 10 years, having co-presented at conferences, shared creative ideas, and she has been an excellent editor of works I have submitted for publications. I would be most surprised if any writer does not find his or her creativity significantly enhanced by the insights and wisdom that Jeanette brings to her professional work. It’s my delight to recommend Jeanette.

— NATALIE JAY ADVERTISING DIRECTOR NJ/ROCKLAND JEWISH MEDIA GROUP/THE JEWISH STANDARD
Jeanette is about the most prolific, involved and detail oriented author and editor I know. Anything and everything she’s done has been well researched and she never takes the phrase “to the best of my knowledge” as fact. She goes to the source. She gets the facts. Her writing style is interesting and engaging. However, Jeanette does not confine these qualities to her writing. As a person, she’s involved herself in causes and movements in order to bring to light injustices. She just doesn’t look at the inequities of the world but seeks to heal them. Frankly, I have no idea how she ever has the time to do everything I know she’s done. But that’s just another quality of a well organized person. No matter how busy she is, she will always work things in and you know she will give it her best and then some.
— ANNE PINZOW, CONSULTANT, TOAD HALL
Jeanette is a very creative, out of the box person. She does wonderful work with much knowledge and works well with all who come into contact with her. I strongly recommend her for the job.

I would trust her with everything from “A to Z.” Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative
