Faces of PUC: Judy Cushman

Judy Cushman is the First Lady of PUC, but that doesn’t mean she spends all her time traveling with the president. Instead, you will most often find her down at the Counseling Center, where she serves as the disability support services coordinator. Judy is passionate about student success and has dedicated her professional life to just that. She loves interacting with and supporting the student body; being able to do so on a daily basis brings great joy to her life.


What brought you to PUC? How/Why did you decide to work here? 

My husband was asked to be the president. I wanted to work closer to home as I would commute an hour to work every day for 16 years and I wanted to work with students.

What is the best thing about being a part of the Pioneers family?

 I love the students and enjoy interacting with faculty and staff.


Where is your favorite place to eat in the Valley and why?

 The Sherpa Kitchen is probably my favorite.

What is something you can do/want to do that might be surprising for people to learn? 

I love putting jigsaw puzzles together. I have a puzzle going at my house all the time.  It is my way to relax.

What is one song you’re listening to on repeat lately?

 Probably something from Big Daddy Weave.

Who is someone you admire and why? _MG_5876

I admire so many people, but if I have to pick one it would be my husband. He has inspired me to reach toward goals, including getting my masters and trying new jobs.  His love language is helping people reach their potential.

Finish this sentence: On Sunday mornings you can find me … 

Taking a walk with my husband in the forest!
