An intuitive leader and trainer, Jude is particularly passionate about helping individuals and businesses reinvent and re-brand themselves inside and out while guiding and inspiring them through a successful course of change. A born teacher, she has always found a great sense of joy and satisfaction watching others discover their best selves and has learned and grown right along with them.

 Self-employed for most of her adult life, Jude has successfully transitioned her career and lifestyle across countries and diverse professions from the arts (film, television, and stage) to professional image and personal branding development, to producing fundraising events & working as a volunteer for an animal rescue group, to serving on boards, to creating and leading internationally renowned seminars at NYU, FIT, and Baruch College. She had lately been focusing on emotional and cultural intelligence and personal branding for her recent workshops held in Vancouver and Bogota, Colombia, and has taught foreign students in classes and online at ILAC International Business College.

Jude has also acted as a mentor for young minority women, coached individuals and adult students for NYU continuing education & professional development programs, been a long time small business supporter & adviser, and has facilitated professional mastermind groups. In addition to speaking professionally for a variety of venues, she has been interviewed & quoted on podcasts, radio, TV, and for several publications, such as Real Simple and Daily News, NYC. Jude has also recruited and trained award-winning sales teams.

 Her eBook, The Fundamentals of Clout: Powerful First Impressions with Personal Style Basics, was joined by a second volume, The Fundamentals of Clout: Communication Tips For A New World…Unplug, Turn-0ff, & Tune In available for sale on Amazon and other eBook sites worldwide. (Visit our Books page for details.) Her first published handbook, The Power of Personal Style, had been discovered by Vantage Point Productions in L.A. and had subsequently been pitched to the Style Channel Network in the US as a possible series called 'Inside Out'.
