Throughout her life, Judy has lived in Pittsburgh, PA, Columbus, OH, Raleigh, NC, and Virginia Beach, VA.  

Judy had a distinguished career in the field of public health for many years, but her love for business and interaction with people lead her into the field of Marketing Consulting.  What followed was the marriage to her soulmate, Pete Kienle. She founded Kienle Communications Inc., which gave both of them the opportunity to combine their talents and grow their marketing consulting business into a highly successful and sought-after enterprise.  She was a Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) with the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS). Judy frequently wrote articles and taught throughout the country, including continuing education programs at The Ohio State University and she served as an Adjunct Professor of Health Sciences at Stratford University, Virginia Beach campus.  Also, she was an Associate editor for the Dublin, OH history book called Dublin’s Journey, published in 2004.
