BIO

Judy Huge, President, graduated cum laude from Goucher College where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and holds a Masters degree from The Johns Hopkins University. She is the founder of the Goucher (College) Teachers' Institute, a graduate program focused on improving the teaching of writing. Her own consulting firm, Work/Write consulting, helps clients make a difference in the way they define, approach, and solve the communications and management challenges that are unique to their particular situations.

Clients have ranged from Fortune 100 corporations to not-for-profits. Her projects have ranged from working with senior management at a New York utility to improve their crisis communication after the first World Trade Center bombing to helping one of the nation's largest foodbanks redesign their business model after traditional sources of donated food dried up. She helped individuals as well as organizations grow through their transitions teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in organizational development, advanced writing and therapeutic journaling as well as directing workshops in venues across the nation. Additionally, she is the author of A Middle Aged Woman and the Sea, a tale of memoir and transition published in Women in the Wild as well as her own business column and travel articles for the Gannett newspaper chain. She is also a contributing author, with six other IWWG members, to the recently published 101 Ways You Can Help: How to Offer Support and Comfort to Those Who are Grieving.
