Judy — Client/Patient Care Coordinator

Judy with Cat

Judy has been in veterinary medicine for almost 40 years. It began when she became a single mother, raising four children ages 11, 10, 9 & 7. Her love of animals brought her to a job in a pet store where a local veterinarian would come to examine and vaccinate the puppies. Judy cared for them and assisted the doctor. One day, he called and offered her a position at his animal hospital. Shortly after starting there, she began taking veterinary technician classes at the College of Lake County. Upon completing that course, she was promoted to hospital manager. The next step was Parkland College, where she was among the first group to become certified veterinary technicians in the state of Illinois. She and five of that group formed the Illinois Association of Veterinary Technicians and Assistants and Judy was secretary/treasurer. Then came the Sunset Act. She and several other fellow CVTs drove to Springfield (several times) to defend their certification and were successful.

After 20 years with the same doctor and practice, she realized that she had to search for another animal hospital closer to home. Judy has now been at Animal Hospital of Streamwood for 20 years! She co-owns three dogs with her children. Two are yorkies, Lulu and Mister (who she shares with her daughter), and the other is a shih-tzu mix, Zoey, who lives with her son. In her spare time, she is an avid bird watcher, enjoys her summer home, fishing, reading, and doing crossword puzzles (in ink!).
