I'm Judy Haveson, a proud Texan living in New York.
I will never lose my southern charm or accent and use both when the situation absolutely calls for it. I once had a boss tell me that there are two types of people in the world: those who know and those who want to know — be the one who knows. That boss fired me, but his words have always stuck in my head. I've been addicted to current events, politics, and People magazine ever since, and not necessarily in that order.
My fascination with compelling storytelling plays well with my lifelong communications career of promoting products, services, companies, and individuals spanning various areas and industries, including non-profits, travel & hospitality, entertainment, fashion & retail, authors, and even rock stars and rap artists. You'll have to read the book for details on that last piece of information.
I like to think I'm witty, but many call it sarcastic. You decide! I thought I would be a journalist until my first journalism professor told me to pick a new major. He said I'd be an editor's nightmare because I wrote like I talked and never stopped talking. According to my parents, this fact makes sense because I was an early talker. Those close to me have no problem believing this bit of trivia.
The most important things to me in life are (in no particular order): family, loyal friendships, staying fit to always appear younger than I am, a good cut and color, cavity-free dentist appointments, spectator sports (mainly football), travel, my son's infectious smile and laugh, and good food and wine (or a dirty, vodka martini) along with the company of great friends to enjoy it all.
Life is a crazy journey, but as my wise mama once told me — a long time ago — while there are many things in life we can't change, your hair color isn't one of them. And I always listen to my mama.
Thanks for joining me on my journey, and feel free to say hello; I'd love to hear from you!
