Jude Wallesen

DA Guadalajara Past Chair

I have been living and working in Guadalajara for 18 years. My background is in communications, psychology, and education, and I work as an independent editor and as a psychotherapist (mostly online these days). I´ve been a member of DA since before the Guadalajara chapter formed and in 2017 helped to build our chapter. I was eventually elected to Chair in February 2019. For the past two years I’ve worked alongside an enthusiastic and talented team of active volunteers, including those from other chapters. The cohesive relationship we have built amongst our chapters has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my involvement with DA. With my experience in chapter building and management, I think I’d be a great support to other chapters, sharing infrastructure and operational ideas, helping brainstorm complicated issues, serving as liaison to other areas in the organization, and being a strong shoulder to lean on if needed.
I am bilingual and a dual citizen, having received my Mexican citizenship in December of 2017. I am married to Carlos Dominguez Huerta and am the doting mother of two French bulldogs.
