Why I work at Neighborcare Health:
I began attending births in the late 1970s as a birth assistant in a rural Oregon clinic. Motivated by my love for the work and my deep commitment to women and their health care, I began a nine-year journey that led to my becoming a midwife. Being a midwife gives me a chance to blend science and art into a role that serves women and their families. I enjoy the diversity of cultural backgrounds and birth traditions among my clients. I appreciate the opportunity to develop an ongoing supportive relationship with a woman and her family over the course of pregnancy.
Judy is married and has two 'delightful' daughters, Alia and Shoshana and two mischievous dogs, Sundance and Legacy. She enjoys baking, hiking, cross-country skiing, playing together with her family and going on picnics.
