In real life

  • Favorite Place To Be: Anywhere where my friends and family are

  • Favorite Meal: Steamed shrimp, salad and French bread
  • Favorite Plays: on Broadway I loved The Lion King for the costumes and staging, and Aida for the music
  • Off The Clock: Other than work, my favorite things to do are reading (especially Pat Conroy), and cooking a big meal (then sitting outside and eating for hours)
  • Childhood Memory: I lived in Richmond VA as a child and loved the lightning bugs on a summer evening
  • Surprising Pet Fact: I didn’t know I could love a little grand puppy but I do!
  • Inspiration: My inspiration in work – whether color, comfort or composition – is nature
  • Favorite Part Of The Job: Seeing how what I do changes the way people live and how they feel about their space

“The best leader in the world. One of the most thoughtful designers around, she’s a great teacher who truly cares for her employees and clients.”

“Judy taught me that the easy trust of others comes from hard work. Making it look easy comes from years of preparation. Never stop preparing, you never know what’s next.”
