Applicant Coordinator and Trainer
Judith works with applicants at every stage of our placement process. She reviews applications, participates in the matching process, and is the liaison between the recipients and the organization following graduation. In addition, Judith works with our current team of dogs-in-training to get them ready for placement.
Judith joined the P&A staff in September 2022 after a year of volunteering. Prior to joining P&A, she spent 10 years volunteering with horses and riders at therapeutic equine facilities. It was through this work that she became passionate about the unique bond between 4-leggeds and 2-leggeds and the remarkable ways animals support and partner with their humans. Judith is excited to be working with the P&A dogs to make a positive impact in young peoples’ lives and is honored to be part of such a worthwhile organization. Judith lives in Penn Valley with her husband Lou, two kids in college, and the best kind of chocolate: their brown labradoodle Andy.
