Judy is hands down one of the most positive, dedicated, and resilent military spouses I know. She volunteers countless hours to It’s a Military Life, which is a nonprofit organization that serves the military community. Judy not only is the editor in chief of the website, but also is the social media manager. Both she does with great passion and enthusiasm, in order to share the amazing stories of fellow military spouses and other military community members. She’s tremendously creative and is a team player, and a fantastic leader. Judy is one of the many professional volunteers at the nonprofit organization, and she is the best of the best as a volunteer and fellow military spouse!
