After attending the University of British Columbia, Judy completed an internship at the Ottawa Civic Hospital. In 1992 she earned her PhD (Dietetics) from the University of Guelph.

Judy has worked in a variety of settings – clinical, community health, public health and academic. Her time as Associate Professor at the University of Guelph led to her most recent position as a Professor and Discipline Head of Dietetics in the College of Health & Biomedicine, Victoria University in  Melbourne, Australia.

Working internationally furthered her respect for the significant advances in dietetic practice developed by DC and Canadian dietitians.
