Hi, I’m Judy!

I’m an energetic redhead who loves her life, her son, her faith, and her clients! I’ve always taken the scenic route through life. Born in Boise, Idaho, my family moved to Alberta, Canada for mom’s job, eventually moving to Pennsylvania for dad’s job where I graduated from Hershey High School. I’ve worked in education, banking, law firms, insurance companies, nonprofit organizations, ministries and was an adrenilin junkie emergency room intake interviewer. In 2002 I graduated with a Master’s in Clinical Counseling and began my own successful faith-based counseling practice in Worthington, Ohio in 2003. I added Certified Coach Practitioner, Life Coach, and Business Coach certifications in 2016.

It’s been a blessing to work with a variety of leaders over the years. My heart has always been drawn to nonprofit and Christian ministry leaders because of their compassionate hearts. Yet they also generally feel overwhelmed, burdened, like a failure most of the time. I’m passionate about sharing my years of experience in understanding how to do relationships well with leaders who want to make a difference in the world. I know how to help people become insightful, confident, inspiring leaders who lead without guilt.
