In her early years, she worked as a waitress at the Royal Savage Inn. Judi graduated from Clinton Community College and SUNY Plattsburgh with numerous degrees in Math, Science and Education. After graduating from college, Judi began her teaching career at St. Alexanders School and later was a science teacher at Stafford Middle School, retiring in 2007.

Judi will be remembered by her students as the teacher who concluded the school year by permitting students to tie-dye t-shirts. After retiring from teaching, Judi managed the Fun Zone Arcade at the mall.

She was an active parishioner at St. Alexanders Church participating in the church choir, Harvest Dinner raffle baskets, Soup Kitchen, and Ladies of St. Alexanders and St. Josephs. Judi's greatest joy in life was spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was an avid supporter of their many activities and accomplishments.
