* NobleBigot: She is mildly homo/transphobic, as she worries that Jude acting different will get him beat up. That said, since Jude ''has'' been beat up before but there's a certain level of FreudianExcuse going on since she has zero issues with Stef and Lena and seems to be the most supportive of [[{{Transsexual}} Cole]] out of everyone at Girls United; it may very well be that she's not bigoted but just excessively worried about her brother getting injured or worse.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Fights to keep Jude in school even though he's woefully unprepared for the tests that the school has to give to maintain funding and she realizes that Jude skipping past the waiting list could seem like Nepotism.
