Her leadership experience in the luxury segment of the hospitality industry for over a decade has crossed over into her current role, where she oversees the firm’s client and business development initiatives. Ms. Rudolphi has been a trusted advisor to businesses in various industries, including education, technology, food and beverage, hospitality and travel, non-profits, and consultancies.

Ms. Rudolphi is passionate about social justice and humanitarian issues, most notably during law school where she served as a Student Attorney for both the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project and Clemency Project. There, she represented clients wrongfully convicted of crimes based on the unavailability of DNA testing at the time of their conviction, eyewitness misidentification, and false confessions stemming from Due Process violations. Ms. Rudolphi also drafted an incarcerated client’s petition for commutation of his sentence based on criteria set forth by the Department of Justice’s Clemency Initiative. She gives a lot of her time to volunteer organizations both within her community and on a national level.
