Ms. Judd worked her way through school at a variety of part-time jobs, including in the exceedingly unglamorous roles of peeling shrimp and setting tile. While working at a small firm, during a break from Holland & Knight, she participated in the lawsuit that resulted in the first official agreement between the US government and the Miccosukee Indian tribe.
Ms. Judd has a passion for orchids. She established and operated Juno Beach Orchids for several years before family health issues forced its closure. She travels frequently to the tiny nation of Belize, where she owns a small farm and hopes to someday retire.
