Judie was born in California but lived most of her life in a small anthracite coal-mining town in northeastern Pennsylvania.  In 1997, Judie, her husband and son moved across the country and settled in Tri-Cities much to Judie’s delight.  She always felt the desire to live somewhere on the west coast and she was intrigued by the beauty of Washington State.  Judie and her son became involved in community theatre and Judie found the volunteer life to be most rewarding, but in 2002, she lost her husband to a short-lived illness and found herself thrown back into the work force.  For the past 15 years Judie worked in various positions for several non-profits and currently works as oversight director for Head Start, Inc. in Hermiston, Oregon.  Judie has a passion for community theatre and has volunteered as properties artisan for several theatre groups in Tri-Cities for 20 years.  Judie also served as Academy of Children’s Theatre board member/treasurer for 7 years.  Soon after attending a Trot fundraiser Judie’s interest in the work and mission of the organization grew so she applied and became a Board Member in October.  Judie is excited to serve on the TROT board and she looks forward to contributing to the potential growth and success of the organization.
