Judy Martin


Judy Martin is an Emmy® award-winning broadcast journalist, Forbes.com blogger and founder of WorkLifeNation.com, an educational portal dedicated to transforming stress in an “always-on” world. But she walks between two worlds. For two decades Judy has tracked business, workplace culture and career trends with an emphasis on work-life balance and stress management strategies, while emerging as a stress management coach, international speaker, and meditation/yoga teacher who focuses on exalting human capital in a 24/7 new hi-tech economy. As a business journalist and broadcaster, Judy spent nearly four years as a New York City Business Correspondent for America Public Media's Marketplace Report. At Marketplace she reported live from Ground Zero and the New York Stock Exchange the day it reopened after the events of 9/11. In those tenuous years, she also covered the upheaval in the corporate arena and the global markets. Judy has contributed to NPR, CNBC Business Radio, World Vision Report, BBC Radio 3, and News 12 Long Island. Among her accolades: National Press Foundation Economic Fellowship, New York Emmy, Associated Press Club, Houston International Film Festival, numerous Press Club awards and the Telly Award. Judy is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists. Most recently, Judy anchored live during the impact of Hurricane Sandy, was in post-genocide Kosovo, covered the Avianca Flight #52 crash, reported from the tent city after Hurricane Andrew, and covered the events of 9/11. That was a pivotal wake-up call. She reported by day and volunteered with the children of the victims by night. It ignited a laser-like personal inquiry into the concept of work-life balance. She began the exploration of how employees navigate chaos in the workplace, manage work stress, and cultivate resilience while being productive in uncertain times. Calling on her experience in the frenetic pace of news, and her study of yoga, breath-work and meditation, in 2001 she developed her signature stress management workshop, Practical Chaos: The Four Gates of Transformation, and in 2006 released her first CD Practical Chaos: Reflections on Resilience. In 2011, she completed her first e-book, 7 Tools to Reduce Stress in the Work-Life Merge. Judy received her yoga teacher’s accreditation (RYT-200), with the Yoga Teachers Training Institute in New York, and is a certified Hospice volunteer. Her work is influenced by: Vassar College Professor and career sociologist Rick Jarow PhD, mind/body expert Joan Borysenko PhD, Deepak Chopra, social economist John Perkins, and work-life pioneer Matthew Fox. Judy works with clients across all professional sectors to help them transform and channel stress toward creativity and innovation. She has facilitated stress reduction workshops and spoken on the work-life merge to numerous academic and corporate audiences including: UJA-Federation, Motorola, Orange/Rockland Utilities, Right Management, American Psychological Association’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Conference, American Cancer Society, Hofstra University, National Association of Mothers’ Centers, NYS Home Healthcare Providers, Daniel Gale Real Estate, Healthcare Public Relations Society of New York.
