Prior to coaching, Judy advised mission-driven organizations on strategy, governance, and management as an independent consultant, helping clients to build organizational infrastructure to implement their visions. Her passion for agility in business leadership began in the early days of her career while doing IT innovation for Accenture and spending time in tech hubs throughout the country. This sparked an interest that led her to the University of Chicago Booth School of Business where she investigated the ways in which ecosystems, collaborative partnerships, and empowered workplaces unleash innovation and success. She continues to bring these insights to her clients by supporting them to build systems and leadership capabilities to navigate the complex characteristic of successful and innovative organizations.
