Jeannette wrote about topics including the independence movement in the Catalonia region and major Spanish companies such as Zara owner Inditex SA and Banco Santander SA. Before moving to Madrid, she was a reporter with the Journal in New York, where she covered the U.S. municipal bond market, credit-rating firms and pension funds.
