Judy taught grades seven through college and worked with special needs individuals in rehabilitation facilities and high schools. In 1987, she moved to Arizona from Kansas City, Missouri, and was a High School Guidance Counselor for the Deer Valley School District through May 2005.
Although Judy has loved art since her college days she kept her focus related to her teaching career and earned an M.S. in Education, an M.Ed. in Counseling, an Ed.S. in Secondary Administration, and numerous Certificates in the Welding Trades (375 Clock Hours). In 1990 she decided it was finally time for art and began taking art classes and workshops. "My focus is watercolor, but I take time to explore other fun things, too!"
