Judy Green is an entrepreneur who loves challenges and finding creative solutions. She holds a Master of Computer Science from Carleton University, and has a diverse background that includes serving in the Canadian Forces as an Airframe Technician as well as creating and selling a business. An accomplished author, voracious reader and lifelong learner, Judy enjoys a wide range of topics and exploring how new knowledge can be applied to solve current problems.
Judy and Allan, her husband of 36 years, met while training in the Canadian Forces. They both come from military families and their son has continued the family tradition. Judy was born in British Columbia, and has lived across Canada, spending almost 20 years in Nova Scotia at various military bases. Judy and Allan now reside in Clementsport where they are nurturing a tree farm, rescue dogs and chickens.
As climate change becomes a worsening crisis, and they welcome their third grandchild into the world, Judy knows it is time to take action. The clock is ticking and she believes we cannot get ourselves out of this situation with the same thinking that got us into it. That is why she is committing herself to a political party with a comprehensive plan to build a sustainable economy and slash greenhouse gas emissions.
Judy has a long history of volunteerism, starting with her time as Junior Vice-President of the Junior Humane Society. She was elected as a School Trustee, was the first Chair of the IEEE Society at Acadia University, served on the local Police Commission, and in various executive positions with the Chamber of Commerce. Judy was awarded the Lion of the Year and Presidents Award from the Lion's Club, and currently serves on an organizing committee for Fresh Food Box in Digby, addressing food insecurity in rural Nova Scotia.
A lifelong adventurer, you can still find Judy trail running, hiking, scuba diving, race car driving or skydiving.
