Chairman of the Board

Founder, Chairman of the Board, and senior strategic consultant to many of our high profile clients, Judy is always in demand.

Notable engagements include rebrands for JK Moving Services and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, as well as brand launches for Convergent Wealth Advisors and National Museum of the American Indian.
