She is a facilitator, mediator, trainer, and educator, with extensive experience in conflict management and collaborative processes, since 1995. Founded in 1999, her private collaboration and conflict management consulting practice focuses on intra- and inter-organizational, community-wide, national, and international intervention, training and coaching. The practice focuses on complex, multi-party conflict resolution; collaborative planning and problem-solving; organizational development, strategic planning, team-building, and restorative justice.

Since 2004, she has twice served as visiting professor for Sophia University in Bulgaria—in their joint graduate and doctoral programs with Ignatius University—for diplomats from various countries who are serving at the United Nations headquarters. She has written and contributed to several publications.
Prior to establishing her consulting practice, Tudy-Jackson was the Senior Director of Safe Horizon Mediation Program (now known as The New York Peace Institute); and before that, she was a labor and employment associate with Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. Before becoming a lawyer, she served in various positions, with Continental Grain Company (1975 – 1989), where she ultimately served as Vice President, Labor Relations-World Grain Division.
