About Accent On Speech
Accent On Speech trains people to become better, more effective communicators. Judith started working in New York City as a speech-language pathologist in 1993, where she worked extensively with diverse populations and communication issues, including accent, voice, and stuttering, as well as language and speech delays/disorders. Her business for the past 10 years has focused on improving communication skills for professionals seeking to be more successful in their business and personal lives. She works with individuals, corporations, and other organizations to improve speaking, voice and overall communication skills.
With a background that includes a B.A. in linguistics and an M.A. in speech and communication sciences, she is a member of CorSpan (Corporate Speech Pathology Network), VASTA (Voice And Speech Trainers Assoc.), and ASHA. She's studied several languages, in addition to voice, public speaking, acting, and movement, and occasionally performs as a singer in New York City. Judith received a voice teacher training certificate for singing from New York Vocal Coaching Studio. She has a strong interest in the mind/body/voice connection. On the business side, she's taken over 20 courses relating to organizational communication skills, strategic human resources, leadership, and the like--a fascination discovered later in life!
She has a passion for what she does and approaches each client with fresh eyes. Her approach is holistic and focuses on the needs of the unique individual to improve professional and personal communication skills. The approach stems from insights gained through years of experience in working with professionals of various backgrounds and science, theory, practicality and creative intuition, which is what makes it effective. She gives her all to every single client.
Judith has worked with diverse companies and organizations, including Bloomberg, BTG, Merrill Lynch, IBM, Palmolive, Bank of China, HSBC, Mt. Sinai Hospital, NYU Business School, Columbia Engineering Department, the U.N., Ernst & Young, Thomson Reuters, among others.
