Judy was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She attended Weber State University’s Respiratory Therapy Certification Program, and shortly after worked at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City as a Respiratory Therapist. After four years, she moved with her family to Southern California where she worked as a Managed Health Care Administrator. Looking for a change in lifestyle, and to be closer to ailing elderly family member, she made the move back to her home state.

Judy has more than twenty years of experience in healthcare. Leadership positions include Executive Director of Saddleback Memorial Medical Group in California, and Chief Operating Officer of Greater Newport Physicians at Hoag Hospital. In her new role at RVU, she is the Administrative Assistant for Tracks and Special Programs, having previously served as an exam proctor for RVU.
