Judy joined the Into Your Hands board because she thinks we have much to learn from Africa, especially learning to live more simply.  She is interested in helping the communities we work with become self-sufficient, empowered to dream their own destinies.

She is an architect with her own firm and does landscape design with Timberline Gardens Landscapes.  She is a serial career changer, with a degree in political science and a prior career in human resource management.

Judy was a founding member of Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity and also served on the Colorado Habitat for Humanity board for a number of years.  She has ben involved with numerous Evergreen non-profits, donating architectural services to EAS+y’s community gardens and the Center for the Arts.

She lives with her husband and two dogs.  Every year they take a month or so in their RV to visit a new area.  Best so far was Alaska, although the Northern Lights didn’t show up.  Last year in the Pacific Northwest was a close second.  The long term traveling takes up her earlier adventures backpacking around Europe and taking six months to car camp across the US.
