The real-life inspiration behind ABC's hit political thriller series "Scandal" starring Kerry Washington, Judy Smith is the US's premier crisis management expert. As the founder and president of Smith & Company - a leading strategic and crisis communications firm with offices in Los Angeles and Washington, DC - she uniquely combines her communication skills, media savvy, and legal and political acumen to serve clients around the world.
Smith honed her skills through her experiences with some of the most historic and sensational events of our time, including the Iran Contra investigation, the prosecution of former DC Mayor Marion Barry, the 1991 Gulf War, the Los Angeles riots, the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Justice Clarence Thomas, President Clinton's scandal involving Monica Lewinsky, the congressional inquiry of Enron, and the United Nations' and World Health Organization's responses to the SARS epidemic.
She has become the go-to person for corporations, politicians, and celebrities seeking counsel in times of crisis, having consulted individuals such as Monica Lewinsky, Senator Larry Craig from Idaho, actor Wesley Snipes, and NFL quarterback Michael Vick, as well as Fortune 500 companies such as BellSouth, Union Pacific, Wal-Mart, Starwood Hotels, and United Healthcare.
Smith is the author of "Good Self, Bad Self: Transforming Your Worst Qualities into Your Biggest Assets" and her writing has been featured in The Washington Post, National Journal, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, and Fast Company. She regularly writes for The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast and frequently appears on major television networks such as CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, NBC, ABC, and CBS to offer commentary on topical issues of the day.
Judy Smith received her bachelor's degree in public relations from Boston University and graduated from the American University Washington College of Law where she was the first African American woman to serve as executive editor of the Law Review.
