Judy Hoffman, Medical Advisor
Judy is a Nurse Practitioner by trade, but loves to play in the dirt! She was blessed to grow up in a Christian family, went to college in South Carolina, spent several years on staff at a Christian Camp in Tennessee, lived in Texas for many years, then returned "home" to Georgia a few years ago. All through these years, the Lord has given ample opportunities to use her gardening roots to serve the Lord. She loves to participate in short-term mission trips using both her medical degree and her acquired gardening skills.
