Judy started her career in nursing, developing experience in hospital care, home health, and hospice. But her goal was always to become a nurse practitioner and provide direct care and health education to patients throughout their lives—from infancy through the lifespan. She has been a family nurse practitioner for over 20 years and loves the patient relationships she has developed over that time. Judith is married, with three children and seven grandchildren. When she’s not caring for patients and family, she loves to work in her garden.
