By founding the Wily Network, Judi set out to build a community that would offer wrap-around services to students from matriculation to graduation. Judi earned her B.A. and M.A. degrees in Psychology at Hamilton College and Boston College, respectively. She received her Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. Judi has three adult daughters and lives in Needham, Massachusetts, with her husband.
