As Head of the Family and Philanthropy Advisory team, Judy leads the team of senior strategists who work with families on understanding money, values and philanthropic intent in the family wealth context and the dynamic overlap of five types of capital—human capital, intellectual capital, social capital, foundational capital, and financial capital. Family and Philanthropy Advisory is a thought partner to advisors and their exceptional client families on wealth transitions, family governance, and philanthropy as families seek guidance on cohesive dialogue between generations to perpetuate their legacy.

Judy joined UBS in 2008 from Citi Family Office where she was the International Services Manager. In that role, she was tasked with creating and maintaining relationships with Citi's worldwide partners to provide Citi Family Office clients with a resource network for international products and services.

Prior to Citi, Judy was an analyst for Accolade Partners LP, a fund-to-funds venture capital firm in Washington, DC.

Judy graduated with honors from Drexel University with a degree in information systems and technology and a minor in business administration. She also received her M.B.A. in finance and marketing from New York University.
