A military spouse and successful entrepreneur herself, Judy is known to reveal the unspoken truths around tough topics and provides action oriented solutions to individuals and families, military and civilian alike.

"Judy Davis was so fabulous!!!! It was such a breath of fresh air having a motivational speaker empowering wives to be their best and make "their own story" of their military life "opportunity". I can't remember the last time I attended an event that didn't revolve around our husbands in one way or another and I think you hit the nail on the head bringing Judy in to give a different (much needed) perspective. I loved it!!!"
Dawn, Fort Benning, GA
"Working with Judy is such a joy but listening to her speak is a real experience. She doesn't say, “This is my speech and I’m giving it.” instead it's more like, “This is my audience and I’m helping them.” And then she takes you by the heart and leads you where you need to go. Thank you for sharing so openly and providing action steps that are simple and effective."
"Imagine working with someone who is dedicated to helping you reach your business goals while establishing long-term and trusted relationships with your customers. Judy has built a network of successful entrepreneurs and is committed to helping organizations, such as yours, build systems and protocols that ensure lasting success. Judy will work hard to help you reach your business objectives and she will provide personal service. She will also put her family first. Fortunately for you, you will become her family".
