Judy Baker is completely creative. She attributes her love of color to her mother and her love of books to her father. From an early age, communication and connection have been her passion. She acted in little theater and studied drama and telecommunication at San Diego State University. Baker came north for an audition at A.C.T., and although she didn’t get the part, she moved to San Francisco — where she met her future husband at a party on Pier 33, July 4th, 1976.
Fascinated by the ways in which people behave, Baker studied Organization Behavior at UCSF and went on to become the first Director of Human Resources for Sutter Home Winery. Following the “Great Downsizing of 1992,” she was featured in a story in the Press Democrat as one of the first women in Sonoma County to have a legitimate home office.
Baker started off providing graphic design services to small businesses. They kept asking for help with their marketing. Being smart enough to recognize a need, she began offering marketing services to clients around the country. She specializes in helping independent authors sell more books.
She launched a partnership with Judy M. Reyes, Book Marketing Mentor, offering support to authors launching and marketing their books.
A cancer survivor, she lives in Sonoma with her husband, Garry, and 4 chickens, Aria, Puff, Lacey, and Scarlet.
