On July 20, 2009, Judy was the recipient of a miracle. It's the only word she can use to describe the gift of a heart, transplanted from an Army Ranger, who died after fighting to save his comrades in Afghanistan. "He saved people when he was wounded and saved even more people when he died; how many people can say that?", Judy said sitting in her Winnetka home where she grew up. Since receiving the heart of Cpl. Benjamin Kopp; Judy has made it her mission to spread the word about the importance of organ donation. It's what Ben would have wanted, Judy believes, and is the least she can do to carry on his spirit. "If just one person decides to be an organ donor, they'll be honoring Ben". Not a day goes by that Judy doesn't think about Ben, his gift and the incredible circumstances that led up to her heart transplant. She is very excited & pleased with the heart surgeries made possible by RightStart4Kids.

Judy was the 2014 keynote speaker to honor veterans at Winnetka, IL 87th Memorial Day observance.

Judy graduated from Washington University in St.Louis and Graduate School @ Northwestern's Kellogg School of Business. Her professional career was in the Finance Industry.
