I was honored to be interviewed by the fabulous Judy Goss the other day on her popular What Women Want show on LA Talk Radio. In addition to being a successful radio show host, St. Martin’s Press published author, and entrepreneur, she is the mother of twins. Judy is also a fellow Terp having also studied at the University of Maryland, College Park! Go Terps!
You can tune into my interview here:
As a More Magazine Editor/Better TV Correspondent Judy was chosen to interview celebrities such as former first lady Laura Bush in a private sit down and also hosted her own show on Better TV. Judy also had the pleasure of interviewing other notable women such as Barbara Corcoran, Nora Ephron, Jean Chatzky and even stars like D.M.C. from the famed rap group “Run-DMC” and many more. Judy regularly appears on networks such as NBC, ABC and FOX news shows.
As the author of “Break Into Modeling for Under $20” published by St. Martin’s Press, Judy achieved national press and acclaim for her book being touted as the “go-to guide” for anyone wanting to venture into the modeling industry.
Judy also founded the nationally acclaimed organization Over 40 Females®,” a live and online networking community to “Connect, Encourage and Inspire” women over the age of 40 all over the world. In the press constantly because of Judy’s background, Over 40 Females has become a force to be reckoned with in the women’s networking industry.
Judy is also a motivational speaker who has presented in front of audiences of thousands about triumphing through adversity, women’s issues and more.
After a successful career in her 20’s as an international high fashion model for Ford Models in New York City (where she traveled extensively around the world appearing in worldwide campaigns such as Armani, L’oreal and Nivea), Judy left modeling to work for an advertising agency. She created the position of casting director/producer at a prestigious advertising agency in New York City, Hershey Communications (clients included Bloomingdale’s, Dillard’s and Espirit), which then led to her to become a highly regarded model agent at two of the world’s leading modeling agencies, New York Models and Ford NY.
Working as a modeling agent led Judy to become an editor for Cosmopolitan and then More Magazine. After only two months with More, Judy was selected to be their national media spokesperson which was a catalyst to her hosting career. This position included a vast and varied array of interviews with radio, television and print where she traveled across the country doing beauty and fashion segments along with representing their nationwide model search for women over 40.
Judy is on the advisory board for StopCAIDNow as a Media/Marketing advisor and is a certified volunteer for the New York chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation and lives with her husband and twin girls in New York. Big thanks to Judy for the interview.
