A semi-retired physician, Judy draws on her years of medical practice, patient encounters and life experiences for inspiration. A native New Yorker, Judy now lives in Las Vegas, where she is indulging in her four passions.
No longer practicing medicine, Judy is keeping her love of medicine alive by doing clinical research.
While Judy’s career has been predominantly left-brained, she has always filled her free time with artistic pursuits. She is an avid oil painter, singer, and, most recently, author/writer.
Writing became a passion more recently. Her first short story,” Mikey”, submitted for publication to The Literary Nest in April 2015, won the fiction contest. Since then, numerous stories have appeared in online magazines and journals.
Judy’s novel was borne of a suggestion by her daughter about a decade ago that her spare time could be better spent by writing a book. “Worthy” chronicles the lives of two doctors and a hospital chaplain on their quests for fulfillment. An unexpected turn leads them to a discovery which changes the world.
Since her move to Las Vegas, Judy has divided her days among her work, time with her married daughter, and as a member of the Las Vegas Master Singers – the chorus-in-residence of the Las Vegas Philharmonic.
She’s working on her second novel.
