Judy has been the enthusiastic program manager for the Goleta Friendship Center since 2018.
She is a funky Mid West girl from Indiana and attended Indiana University Northwest. She has worked in the non profit world for more years than she’s willing to share. She started out working with developmentally disabled adults in sheltered workshops. She the held a variety of positions, from running a sheltered workshop to supervising residential homes and some other positions in between. Of course Friendship Center has been her favorite!
Judy is extremely creative and is known around town for her pumpkin-painting skills.
She also enjoys dancing, reading, being here in Santa Barbara and everything it has to offer. Judy says she experienced some culture shock whilst trying to fit in when I got to SB. “What is California casual??”
