As the Director of Parent Service at Second Nature, Judy has a deep understanding of the client experience and the components necessary to support meaningful change. She loves people and has a natural ability to lend a sympathetic ear to those in need. Judy works closely with each family and their Second Nature therapist, to make sure their needs are met during their child’s stay.

Judy joined the Second Nature team in 2005, and has dedicated the past 15 years of her career supporting families in crisis with kindness and compassion. Judy finds immense satisfaction in knowing she is working within a program which promotes emotional strength, mental wellness, and physical safety. These components deeply align with her personal values. She believes wholeheartedly in the wilderness experience and the philosophy of Second Nature. 

Judy is right at home here in the area as she was born and raised in the neighboring rural community of Fruitland. In her free time, she loves spending time with her adorable grandchildren and exploring the outdoors with her husband.
