Judy is a lifetime member of Strathmore Who’s Who Worldwide, Marquis Who’s Who in Entertainment, & International Who’s Who In Popular Music and continues to regularly release her original music to worldwide radio, both am-fm stations as well as internet stations. Judy’s main goal, however, is to have a major singer record one of her published original songs as well as have one or more in films or TV. She hopes to get her patented hats licensed in the near future as well.
