Judy was an avid reader and she loved to travel. After high school she worked in Yellowstone National Park and that experience was the beginning of her desire to see the world. Judy was able to share her experiences from her extensive travels in Asia, Canada, Cuba, Europe, Mexico, United States and her archeological digs. Judy was above all a remarkable educator who was able to introduce the gift of Art, history and traveling into an exciting cultural experience for all that knew her.
