Judy was born and raised in Tulsa, OK but joined the Navy after college and hasn't stopped moving since! After 9.5 years as a Surface Warfare Officer, she left the Navy to earn a M.A. in Administrative Leadership and become a Strengths and Leadership consultant at Strengths Consulting Group, LLC. She also took on the role of Youth Director at her church in San Diego to help launch a brand new church campus.
Although Judy is no longer in the Navy, she is married to a Navy pilot who is now teaching in the Naval Arcitecture and Ocean Engineering department at the Naval Academy. They have a Great Dane/Boxer mix named Roscoe and just welcomed their first child to the world in February 2018!
Judy joined the Blue Ribbon Project upon moving to Annapolis in June 2017 and can be found helping with Backpacks of Love, Aging Up...Not Out, and at various community outreach events. She is also currently working in collaboration with various team members to launch the new A Hand to Hold Youth Alliance in 2018.
