Resiliency is defined as the capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, adversity and life challenges. It is not a trait, but a skill that can be readily enhanced with patience and training. Building better resilience takes time, effort, commitment, and focus. Resilient people know that they need to take an active role to preserve or improve their health.


Resiliency Lectures

The approach to my resiliency lectures is both informational and experiential. I bring vivacious energy and practical advice to companies and organizations interested in educating their employees or members on resiliency techniques that are useful in and out of the field.

My experience as a military service member and wellness practitioner has granted me a unique perspective to offer to a variety of different audiences, from police officers to private small businesses.

I empower my audience to find internal balance through the mind-body connection, giving them the tools to tackle their life challenges with more readiness and from a place of centered calm, whether they are an active duty police officer, new mom, business owner, student, and anyone in between.

I have provided training and lectures for these organizations:

  • Frederick Police Academy

  • Frederick Memorial Hospital Home Health Services

  • Frederick County Library System Adult Education Programs and Employee Wellness Program

  • Fort Detrick United States Army Medical Materiel Development Agency’s Stress Free Zone 

  • For a more exhaustive list and to listen to my radio interviews, visit my Publicity page.

I really found Judy’s lecture helpful and timely because I’m learning how to manage the stress of home health nursing which can be all consuming. I thought Judy was an enthusiastic and inspiring presenter and provided some helpful reinforcement on specific ways to recognize and compensate for stress. I loved it! It was a good reminder that we have more control over our stress levels and responses than we think we do.

I was honored to be presented with the Citizen’s Award from Colonel Hargis - Chief, Frederick Police Department at the 61st Police Academy Graduation. I am grateful for the opportunity to provide resiliency training to our future police officers.
