Board of Trustees
As a long time resident of Salisbury where our children were born and raised, I always enjoyed being active in the community. My professional degrees are elementary education, anthropology, and interior design. Over the years I have been a member of the Salisbury Central School Board, the Scoville Memorial Library, the Salisbury Ambulance Board, and the Salisbury Association, where I served as President from 2014 to 2019. Currently I am Chair of the Governance Committee.

Judy and her husband, Leo, purchased their home in Lakeville in 1984. They chose this area for the beauty of pristine lakes, land, forests, and mountains while providing proximity to New York City. After a career at McGraw-Hill, Judy began her second career at Scoville Memorial Library as Children’s Librarian. After receiving her Master’s Degree in Library Science & Information Technology and her teaching certification, she began a 20-year career at Lee Kellogg Elementary School in Falls Village and then Sharon Center School. She organized many school events: book clubs for parents and children, author and illustrator visits, and a reading program with volunteers from the community. She has been on the boards of Region One Arts Fund, Women’s Support Services and Scoville Memorial Library. She helped initiate the Habitat for Humanity Tag Sale, the Kitchen Tour to support the Housatonic Valley Musical Theatre Society, and the free Monthly Soup Suppers.
