Stacey Hudson Padova is a Remarkable Woman living and working in Alexandria, VA. She has built a successful career in the graphic design world, working within a large corporation and even on a Presidential campaign. She owned two design firms over the past 15 years – currently owning Hudson Studio with her husband Fulvio – and has built a very loyal customer base. She has truly enjoyed her career and knows it’s a gift to do what you love.
We had a wonderful, fun interview, finding many similarities and connection points as professional women with similar upbringings.
Stacey grew up in a small town and genuinely cares about people and her local community. I loved hearing how she lives that out daily, making a difference both personally and professionally. One of the projects she supports is Adopt US Kids. She and her son, Jose, whom she adopted at the age of 18 are spokespeople for this fantastic organization.
As women, we can face many challenges throughout our careers. The inherent challenges of working within a demanding, high-caliber design firm were no strangers to Stacey, but I think you’ll appreciate hearing her share mostly about her physical challenges. She’s offered even to be a resource to any women who have personal experience with Trisomy 18 or a gynecologic cancer.
Through it all, though, Stacey remains positive and knows that life and business are what you make of it. She encourages her team and colleagues to focus on that truth. Our attitude impacts and colors everything.
I really loved listening to Stacey’s ideas on how to maintain an effective work/life balance. This is something every professional dreams of and works towards, myself included! Much of it has to do with where she seeks out her inspiration and resources – I was so grateful to hear her ideas! I’m sure you will appreciate them as well.
