Judith's career as a business consultant has spanned a variety of fields.

Today, fulfilling a lifelong dream, Judith is helping children thrive through the transforming power of theatre. Before starting CoMotion, she was a Senior Vice President with Xceed Inc., an interactive marketing communications firm. During her career she has been an account manager and senior consultant with the international human resource consulting firm, Watson Wyatt Worldwide, a tax accountant with the global accounting and management consulting firm, Deloitte & Touche, and a Director of Finance for Jewish Family and Children Services. A former C.P.A., Judith holds an M.B.A. from Golden Gate University and a B.A. in sociology from Mills College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She has been an active member on the Boards of The One Act Theatre, YMCA - Embarcadero Branch, and the San Francisco Chapter of the CPA Society. In 2016, Judith was honored as a Community Connector for providing San Francisco's Western Addition youth with quality performing arts enrichment opportunities by MoMAGIC, a collaborative of youth organizations founded by San Francisco's Public Defender, Jeff Adachi. In 2015, Judith was awarded the Jefferson Award for Public Service, by CBS San Francisco and the Legacy Award for her sustained support of theater by Theater Bay Area.
