PRC Employee Since: 2015
Bio: Judy is a woman in long-term recovery who came out of retirement and went back to school when a friend was talking about drugs she was unfamiliar with. Going back to school was not new for her, as she received her bachelor & associate of arts in the early 1990s, after entering recovery. This time, Judy went back and received her certification as an alcohol and drug specialist (CATC-II). As a single mother of two, she has faced many of the issues that our clients at Pasadena Recovery Center face today, most notably how to turn shame and guilt into self-sufficiency and move forward with their lives. She is extremely involved in her local community and volunteers on a regular basis for various community organizations. Judy tells her clients often there are two things she shares with them – our humanity and our addiction.
