About Judith

One of my favorite sayings is, "when we stop learning, we stop living."

This philosophy fuels my curiosity, and keeps me excited about working with lawyers and law students who are committed to their professional growth and fulfillment, as well. 

Much of our daily stress and depletion is caused by work practices and demands that tax our systems. When we align our work practices with the way we were designed to work—mentally, physically, emotionally and motivationally—we optimize brain power, maximize resources, have greater energy, are more productive and efficient, and we perform and feel better. We’re empowered to take charge of our professional lives, and we experience greater joy and satisfaction, overall.

Judith comes to program facilitation from the trenches of legal practice. As an attorney, she experienced firsthand the challenges of client demands, internal pressures, external drivers, and time constraints. At the core of her work is a commitment to thriving–both professionally and personally.

Judith has been bringing performance training to lawyers and law firms for more than a decade. She has a background in biology and physiology research, along with specialized training in emotional intelligence, mediation, and resilience, which she incorporates into her programs.  

Judith takes a human design approach to her work with clients, which combines physiology, psychology, values, emotional intelligence and mindset. She has developed tools and programs for helping clients to improve their performance and feel better in the process, in short, to thrive. She is committed to equipping professionals and teams working in high-demand, high-stress environments with the cognitive, emotional and motivational strategies needed to transform stress, build resilience, and produce better outcomes.  Judith founded LeaderEsQ and the Center for Thriving in Law to ensure that high-achieving professionals have the tools that they need to thrive in all areas of their lives.
