Welcome ToTeam Trudi
Meet Our Team
Can I just brag about my team for a second? Because they are just amazing.
Seriously, I have always prided myself on knowing how to identify good team members, but this group of folks right here, they blow me away all of the time.
Although there was a time where I was able to do all the things in my business including set up the sales pages, coach all the clients, plan the launches, write the emails, set up all the tech for our programs…those days are behind us. And, although I know that some folks come to us hoping to get my individual attention on all of their questions, I also know that is NOT the best way to coach.
Having a diverse, well-rounded team allows us to deliver high-quality coaching and deep insights from folks with a wide variety of specialties and brilliance.
This is a team of people I’ve hand-picked and trained on my coaching philosophies and methodology, so our clients are always getting support that is anchored in my approach and our values of Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI).
It is my honor to introduce you to…

She was born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and has lived between Hartford and Tegucigalpa throughout her life, claiming both as her hometown.

Charmagne has worked for over 15 years sharpening her diversity, equity, and inclusion lens working for social justice organizations like Love Makes A Family, Everyday Democracy, and now ScriptFlip!. She attends, participates in, plans, and presents trainings, workshops, webinars, collaboratives, and programs. She has worked closely with communities on various issues, showed them how systemic racism played a part in each, and informed them that, without addressing it, their solutions would be missing a very important piece.
Charmagne brings to this work emotional intelligence, patience, commitment to collaboration, and her own experience as a Black lesbian. She appreciates that we must lean in at times when it is really hard, practice radical self-care, and never give up.
Her approach has always been to find connections, humanize, and try to empathize with those struggling with their privilege–not to coddle, but to gain a deeper understanding of how to engage in ways that benefit us all. Charmagne does this work because she wants to assist in creating safe and inclusive spaces where everyone is valued, and to impact the outcomes for marginalized communities in ways that are meaningful.
