Paige Jude Gilmar
Founder and CEO
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 journalism for over five years, receiving internships from Publishers Weekly and FINE Magazine. She has begun dabbling with broadcast journalism and currently hosts Emerald Magazine's podcast/video series, "A Sober Truth." Paige hopes to continue her academic escapades in graduate school with a Master's in broadcast journalism and business administration.
