Trudy is the co-author of Opening Doors: An Implementation Template for Cultural Proficiency with her esteemed colleague, Dr. Randall B. Lindsey. Her second book, “Raising our Voices”, to be released in Jan. 2020 and co-authored with Dr. Delores Lindsey and Dr. Stacie Stanley offers a counter narrative and strategies to overcome the barriers of women in educational leadership. Trudy has focused her life work on the fundamental belief that the educational system has tremendous capability and responsibility to open doors for all students and their communities. Her leadership has focused on core values that ensure equity, access, and opportunity for each and every child and their family. It has been her privilege to assist school districts throughout the United States to align the actions of the organization with their stated values and principles in their effort to build a culturally proficient organization.
