Jennifer Anderson is a extremely knowledgeable, creative, engaging member of the InterContinental St. Paul catering staff.

Judy did an amazing job helping me with the editing of the non-fiction book body copy and back cover content of my first book writing endeavor. Her knowledge and expertise using the Chicago Manual of Style of general editing was valuable and relevant to helping me deliver the key messages to my target audience. Judy has an innate ability to see the big picture and has a quick grasp of the subject matter. I appreciated her gentle yet concise way of communicating the suggested edits as we worked through the process together, making for a very positive experience. -- Mary Jo Wiseman, CMP
