About Judy: Judy was raised in the wilds of Burnaby in the era of headbanger wars and unfortunate forms of 80s denim. She got her feet wet in the film industry playing roles like "Teenager #3", "Zombie Teenager #2" and "Halfway House Woman #0" but upon deeply introspective reflection, realized she sucked as an actor. Her entry into casting was a serendipitous twist of fate and she considers herself blessed to work in the Vancouver film/tv community. Her inspirations are the actors who come into her casting sessions and demonstrate unwavering courage and commitment and her young daughter who teaches her the beauty and bravery of picking one's self up after falling and continuing on the journey. Hallmark is a major client with whom Judy is grateful to work. In addition, some of the productions of which she is most proud are Canadian feature films. In the past few years career highlights for Judy have been her work on features written, directed and produced by First Nations women and men, stories to which she was honoured to contribute.
