Dr. Tom Hutton Retired Neurologist,Rancher,Author Oct 16, 2019
Retiring

During his thirty-plus years of practicing in West Texas and Minnesota, Tom Hutton discovered that a doctor’s best teachers are often his patients. From these (extra)ordinary individuals, he gained a whole-hearted respect for the resourcefulness, courage, and resilience of the human spirit. Tom Hutton is an internationally recognized clinical and research neurologist and award winning educator. A recognized expert on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.  Tom grew up in Texas, graduated from Texas Tech University and Baylor College of Medicine. He did his internship at Hennepin County General Hospital in Minneapolis and residency at the University of Minnesota.  Carrying the Black Bag is his first book for a general audience. Inspired by those whose lives prompted his professional sojourn, he lovingly tells his patients’ stories, describes their immense reservoirs of courage and perseverance, and depicts their struggles to achieve balance for their disrupted lives. He shares these stories of pathos and humor in the hope they will inspire and help other patients, family members and health care professionals. 
Retired from medicine in 2001, Tom and Trudy, his wife of 46 years, live on a small ranch in the Texas Hill Country where he ranches cattle, writes about neurological patients, Border collies, and retirement.

Judy Lester Nov 13, 2019
Business Coach, former Regional Director of Barnes & Noble Bookstore

Judy honed her skills for helping others grow professional, successful businesses as a Regional Director for Barnes and Noble Booksellers. Her fifteen years of multi-unit leadership was spent training and developing the skills of the managers and district managers of more than 100, multi-million dollar stores. This tutelage was second to none. The company's  "We Listen" culture was ingrained in every relationship company-wide and resulted in empowered, valued employees, productive collaboration, and teamwork that made working fun and easy. That same culture was translated to Lester's shop of 20 years and resulted in numerous awards, tenured staff, and a successful transfer of ownership. Three of their team went on to open their own successful, growing companies. Upon selling their store, Judy studied at one of the most rigorous coaching schools in the world to become a professional, certified coach. She loves working with entrepreneurs, company leaders, and organizations large and small to envision and accelerate the scaleable success they desire.
