She works collaboratively with relationship managers, clients, and their advisors to develop and implement integrated wealth plans and educate clients and their families about planning options and strategies. ​

Judith has over 30 years of industry experience counseling high net worth individuals, corporate executives, owners of closely held businesses and multinationals on sophisticated estate planning designs and strategies. She joined the company in 2003 from Ernst & Young LLP, where she was the New England-area director of estate and business succession planning. Previously, Judith practiced law with a specialty in estate planning at major firms in New York City.​

Judith earned a Bachelor of Arts with honors from Harvard University and a Juris Doctor from the New York University School of Law. In addition to these degrees, in 2008 she was awarded the Accredited Estate Planner® (AEP®) designation by NAEPC in recognition of both her experience in and her interdisciplinary approach to estate planning, and in 2018, she obtained the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® (CAP®) designation through the American College of Financial Services.​
