A long-time member of the Fall River Historical Society, Judy has been extremely active in the organization, serving as a member of numerous committees and volunteering at countless events over the years.

In addition to her work with the museum, Judy is an active member and volunteer of several local non-profit organizations including the Little Theatre of Fall River, the Fall River Garden Club, and the Preservation Society of Fall River. She is also a volunteer at Charlton Memorial Hospital, working in the Oncology Department.
