After graduating with a BA in sociology & MSED in education/counseling from Bucknell University and earning 11 East Coast Conference XC & track championships, as well as coaching cross country/track at Villanova University (’91-’93), Judy began a career in Elementary Education as a school guidance counselor (’93-’94) in Philadelphia. After moving to St. Louis in 1994 for her husband’s residency at Wash U, Judy began her journey (as a skeptic/doubter/agnostic) to explore the claims of Jesus. After accepting Jesus as her savior in 1995 at the tiny start-up church called The Crossing, Judy now serves as Pastor/Leadership Development for the 20,000+ church that has four campuses and a large on-line presence. Judy also takes great joy as the Lead of WXP – an international Women’s Executive Pastor Group. She is married to Steve and has two grown children, Jordan (& wife Sarah) and Anna.
