Getting to Know Dr. Judd

Favorite places you have lived:

New York and Australia


My family comprises my husband, two daughters, and son. At some point I would expect our family to grow again-with the addition of a dog.

Your philosophy on education in seven words:

Education is the gateway to your future.

What music is playing in your car?

I usually listen to NPR in the car. There are too many favorite artists and the list is very eclectic: Fleetwood Mac, Florence and the Machine, Jay Z, Lorde, Billy Joel, etc.

My favorite trip was...

I’m not sure I could pick one trip. I love making memories with family and friends all over the world.

My pet peeve is...

My kids love to torture me with toothpaste in the sink!

My favorite meal is...

I have a lot of them. At the moment, authentic Mexican. We have definitely been making up for eating time lost when we were in living in Australia.

A perfect day is...

Spent with my family.

Cats or dogs?

Big dogs, but I do like cats too. They just make me sneeze.

E-book or hardback?

Hardback. Feels more authentic.

My favorite saying is...

T.S. Eliot’s "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."
