Paige Jude Gilmar
Founder, CEO, and Hiring Manager
Between a Beatles' song and a crisis, Paige founded Asking Jude in December 2013 to see an 1,000 follower-blog transform into a 30,000+ community. Paige began as the first and only peer counselor until the rapidly expanding community demanded another helping hand; she founded Asking Jude's internship program in 2015 and worked as its former hiring manager. In 2020, Paige graduated from McGill University with dueling degrees in psychology and communications. Jack-of-all-trades, Paige has worked in print/broadcast journalism for over seven years, receiving internships from Publishers Weekly and even manning her own podcast series "Sober Truth." She is currently a staff writer for Legion Magazine while studying American journalism from New York University.
