Hometown Hialeah, Florida
Bio With over 15 years as an experienced journalist, Judy joined Patch in November 2010 after spending several years as editor and writer for a nationally distributed relocation magazine covering business, real estate, school and community news.
Her background includes 10 years as an editor and writer for several local golf publications where she covered both professional and amateur events throughout the state and as a freelancer for the AJC while attending college.
She graduated Georgia State University with a degree in journalism and a minor in American Literature. Judy has lived in the Atlanta metro area for over 25 years and currently resides in Duluth with her husband and two sons. When she's not reporting, you can find her out chasing a little white ball around the area golf courses.
At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for you to inject your beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that your beliefs are on the record will cause you to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that we failed in this mission, please let us know.
