TRCB - Member Profile - Judy H. Wright aka Auntie Artichoke

Who is Judy H. Wright aka Auntie Artichoke, the storytelling trainer? And What's with the Artichoke?

Judy is a parent educator, family coach, and personal historian who has written more than 20 books, hundreds of articles and speaks internationally on family issues, including care giving.

Trained as a ready to learn consultant, she works with Head Start organizations and child care resource centers. She also volunteers time writing end-of-life stories for Hospice. She and Dwain, her husband of 40 years, have six grown children and seven grandchildren.  They consider their greatest success in life that their children like themselves and each other.                             

The symbol of the artichoke has great meaning for Judy in her teaching and writing.  As she works with families, she sees that frequently only the outer edges are exposed and can be prickly and sometimes bitter to the taste.  But, as you expose the artichoke and people to warmth, caring, and time, gradually the leaves begin to open and expose the real treasure-the heart.

The artichoke also became a teaching lesson when Judy, with her young family, moved into military housing in California to find Artichokes in their yard.  Given that it takes two years for the vegetable to flower, the original gardener never got to see the seeds of her labor.  Many times, our actions and reactions in life are felt by people we will never meet, but we plant the seeds of kindness anyway.

You will enjoy Judy's approachable manner, wonderful storytelling and common-sense solutions gleaned from working with hundreds of families and organizations just like yours. Your encounter with Judy will leave you feeling inspired, entertained and especially motivated. Visit Judy's website for excellent references and a full listing of books, workshop topics, tele-classes and testimonials.

Our families are sometimes like the outer edges of the artichoke-prickly, hard to move, and comfortable just where they are. The only way to get the leaves and family members to become malleable and motivated is through a warm environment and taking the time and effort to work with them one by one.

As thinking, acting human beings we have the ability to choose our response to events, people and circumstances. We do not become responsible when we mature; we mature when we become responsible.
