Judy is director of Thread’s strategic focus and its creative soul. What drives Judy drives us all – passion, professionalism, pragmatism … and fun. (Fun is an integral part of life here. Might go back to Judy’s early, ill-fated choice of a career in the circus; it works for us.)

After 20+ years in marketing and advertising on both sides of the table, Judy has built close business partnerships locally and nationally.

Her years in marketing leadership for ProMedica Health System and for clients like Lourdes College resulted in local, state, regional and national awards. A finalist for Northwest Ohio Entrepreneur of the Year, Judy is still getting awards from her alma mater (Bowling Green State University), now as an Outstanding Alumna.

In her usual fashion, she’s incredibly cool about it.

Judy serves on the boards of the Advertising Club of Toledo and Toledo Area Humane Society, and on the executive marketing committee for Chicks for Charity. She is a member of the American Advertising Federation, American Institute of Graphic Arts and Maumee Chamber of Commerce.
