She most recently worked at Anthem, a Fortune 50 company, where she held a variety of roles in Human Resources over a period of 14 years. Some of those roles included managing executive development, leading enterprise-wide succession planning, directly supporting C-suite talent management, providing individualized coaching to senior executives, building out an internal coach program, and sourcing external executive coaches.

As an executive coach, Judy encourages self-direction and independence. Her coaching style is outcome-focused and adaptive to changing personal and business objectives.

Through listening with presence, humor, engaging conversation, and a balance of empathy and push, Judy applies her understanding of human and organizational behavior directly to her work with clients.
