No one describes what I do — and the results we can achieve together — better than the clients.

 

“meeting people where they are at and then pushing their abilities”

 

“One of Judy’s best talents is working with her clients to improve their skills – meeting people where they are at and then pushing their abilities. Her thoughtful guidance gives you practical lessons that stay with you for a long time. I count Judy as one of the people who has helped me greatly improve in my speaking and presentation capabilities and confidence.” — State Representative Christine Barber

 

“most talented facilitator I have ever worked with”

 

“Judy is the most talented facilitator I have ever worked with. She facilitated a staff retreat with staff who were fractured, and she managed to engage everyone, keep them engaged throughout the day, honor their styles of learning and processing, and she even wrapped everything up in a neat bow exactly when the retreat was scheduled to end. Every member of the staff felt respected and heard. Judy brought frameworks to guide the retreat that allowed us to come to critical conclusions about how the organization needed to move forward. Judy then worked with staff and the board to craft a new mission statement, which was imperative for the organization’s long-term success. We were thrilled with where we landed thanks to Judy’s guidance. And, secretly, Judy is Wonder Woman, so we felt pretty honored to have her work with us.” – Megan Amundson, former Executive Director, Women’s Action for New Directions

 

“best political trainers I have ever worked with”

 

“Judy is by far one of the best political trainers I have ever worked with. Be it a half-day, full day, weekend, or one-week training, Judy is able to present the material in a way that attendees can fully digest and understand what is being taught and walk away fulfilled. If you are looking for a thoughtful and relatable trainer, Judy is the person for you.” – A’shanti Gholar, Political Director, Emerge America

 

“works to make miracles happen day in and day out”

“Judy works to make miracles happen day in and day out. Whether its figuring out how to get teams to work together or envisioning a winning campaign plan—Judy makes it happen. While working with Judy, our organization grew from a handful of staff to over 30 and winning on dozens of issues. It’s clear to me that we could not have accomplished any of this had it not been for her dedication, expertise and enthusiasm.” — Stephanie Porta, Executive Director, Organize Florida and Organize Florida Education Fund

 

“warm and inspiring attitude”

 

“At a time of uncertainty, Judy was instrumental in coaching a new executive director and a new board to success. She facilitated retreats, mentored the ED, and supported the Board of Directors. She has a deep knowledge of best practices in addition to a warm and inspiring attitude. We wouldn’t be where we are now without her.” – Ryanne Olsen, Executive Director, Emerge Massachusetts

 

“so energizing and inspiring “

 

“Judy provided a one-day workshop for our group that was so energizing and inspiring I was wide awake, planning and dreaming the whole four-hour drive home!  She is professional, focused, and clearly very experienced.  I would hire her first above all if I needed a campaign consultant.” – Jodi Jones, potential candidate in Tennessee

 

“invested in a positive connection and outcome”

 

“Judy is a fantastic trainer – she’s personal and professional and invested in a positive connection and outcome. Able to set and meet group goals and objectives, she keeps the class moving forward and delving in deeper. What I appreciate most about Judy are the times when she’s helped to facilitate a space where participants are able to be vulnerable in order to learn and grow from one another.” – Jill Barkley, Affiliate Director, Emerge America

 

“dedication to people, attention to detail and ability to inspire future leaders”

 

“When I first met Judy, she was putting on a training for Emerge Massachusetts where she was the director. Putting on trainings myself with my organization, I was immediately impressed how much better her weekend was. Judy thought of every detail, from the layout of the space, to the quality of trainers and made sure the curriculum built on itself throughout the day. It really helped the trainees see themselves as leaders in our community. I learned a lot on how to be better organized and how to train. Where Judy truly excelled was in creating a comfortable atmosphere that drove these women, all leaders in their own communities, to get the best out of each other and therefore themselves. She was focused on moving through curriculum but designed it in a way that created a learning environment.

 

Judy sets the standard for organization, for maximizing potential of activists and leaders and identifying attributes that people can use to move forward and improve on.  I have traveled for work to over 30 states, worked many campaigns both around the country and in Massachusetts, and Judy is one of the best organizing minds I have had the privilege to work with.  It is that dedication to people, attention to detail and ability to inspire future leaders that make her a great hire for any organization.” – Jordan Berg Powers, Executive Director, Mass Alliance
