Judy has been with the Dothan-Houston County Substance Abuse Partnership since 2005. Prior to becoming the Partnership’s Executive Director, she held the position of the Tobacco Prevention Manager, Youth Council Advocate, and Life Skills instructor. All of these positions required her to keep current with today’s trends that affect our youth. She has developed professionally by attending numerous educational conferences, seminars, and state and local government meetings all focusing on the dangers of drugs, tobacco, and most recently the hazardous health risk of e-cigarettes.
Judy has taught in middle and high schools in Dothan, Houston County, and the surrounding areas stressing the importance of saying NO to unhealthy choices. It is her passion to teach our children about the dangers of drugs, alcohol and tobacco while encouraging them to make the right life decisions.
Judy is a member of The Alabama Alcohol & Drug Abuse Association (AADAA), Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA), and Alabama Drug-Free Coalition where she sits on the Marijuana Messaging Committee and The Smoke-Free Coalition of Alabama.
Judy is married to her husband David and they have three Children, David, James and Kimberley. When Judy is not at the office or in the classroom, she can be found in her kitchen baking and decorating cakes for family and friends.
Jessica has been a part of the Partnership since 2018. She has been working in graphic design and marketing for 9 years after graduating from Troy University with a double major in graphic design and photography. She has a passion for design and social media that she brings to the table. Upon her being hired, she re-branded the organization by updating the website, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter. She hopes to grow the followers on all accounts to bring more awareness to parents and teenagers about the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Jessica is a firm believer that the hard conversations start at home and she is passionate about working with parents to continue telling kids the truth about drugs, alcohol, and smoking. She has studied about the different types of substances on the streets today and hopes that she can use that knowledge to keep kids away from them.

They have a set of boy/girl twins named Jaxson and Jayleigh, as well as a 2 cats, Maebry & Moose, and a dog named Molly.
