Judi has been writing stories since she was old enough to hold a pencil. Now, she is a collaborator in storytelling. She makes her living strategizing with organizations to figure out how to best craft and deliver their message, from websites and videos to speeches and books. In addition, she frequently works with content marketing agencies and editors at a variety of publications, especially in the areas of health, self-improvement, and culture. Judi has worked with brands such as the American Heart Association, Cleveland Clinic, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Asics, Origami Owl Jewelry, and Petco.
Judi got her start working at an agency as a copy writer, but has been on her own since 2002. A magazine-industry veteran, Judi has written for dozens of publications, such as Better Homes and Gardens, Good Housekeeping, The New York Times, Runner’s World, Self, Women’s Health, and many others. An essay she wrote for Whole Living won the "Outstanding Article Award" from the American Society of Journalists and Authors in 2011. She is the author of three nonfiction books. Her most recent, “Would I Lie To You? The Amazing Power of Being Honest in a World That Lies,” tackles what it means to live a more honest life.
When she’s not writing, Judi loves running, yoga, and flea markets. She lives with her husband and two young children in Cincinnati.
