A Chicago native, Judith Ruiz-Branch is a passionate and driven media connoisseur. She graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Latino Studies. Judith has extensive news, media and public speaking abilities and has gained experience at various outlets in Chicago including Crain’s Chicago Business, CLTV, WGN-TV, and Rivet Radio. Judith also co-founded a non-for-profit, the Angel Gabriel Foundation, in memory of her Uncle who passed away from cancer. The foundation’s mission is to offer essential support for the fight against cancer and beyond.
Combining her media experience, philanthropic spirit and passion for empowering people, she now proudly serves as the Public Relations and Community Outreach Coordinator for the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. Judith would love to continue gaining experience in all mediums of media as she establishes herself as an influential force in the world of public relations and journalism, and philanthropy and media. Judith doesn't like to limit herself in any area of her life. She feels the sky is not the limit, but merely a glass ceiling which she intends to shatter.
