Judy works with community and school personnel to develop programs and curriculums to meet their needs, select appropriate faculty, set schedules, and oversee and evaluate the programs progress. In her Marketing role, Judy writes and manages all press releases and School and Foundation announcements. An important part of her job is maintaining relationships with area print and online advertising and editorial representatives. Judy oversees advertisement design and placement with all print and online marketing. Judy holds a BA from Brandeis University and taught elementary school in the New York City and East Ramapo school districts until she started a family. After a period as a stay-at-home mom, which included volunteer activities in her town and PTA including legislative activities, intern placement and tutoring, she re-entered the workforce as an employment counselor. She became involved in the Steffi Nossen organization through her children, joining the staff as assistant to the Executive Director in 1982. Since then her role has grown, overseeing both the organization’s expanding Outreach Program and its Marketing efforts.
