Judy’s Web Pad | A Portfolio Site

Welcome to my interactive portfolio site.

Named for my fondness for taking notes and hanging out online, I designed Judy’s Web Pad to display my finest work and provide an interactive career summary online. It has blossomed into a portfolio piece of its own, and is an excellent example of my ability to leverage my WordPress and digital marketing skills to promote my own marketing and editorial materials online.

But it’s also a window into my creative life and world, containing carefully selected personal photos, images and colors to evoke my personal style online. I’ve even incorporated an interactive bookshelf on my portfolio site to denote my love of books and publishing, and for fun and convenient reading.

Creative Competencies and Deliverables

This portfolio site includes a variety of samples and a detailed account of my extensive work as a marketer, technical writer and copywriter, freelance journalist and volunteer.

All of these experiences have impacted my career, and made me the well-rounded professional I am today.

Simple click on the marketing, technical writing, journalism or special projects menus on the main navigation menu to view my pieces or learn more about my work experience in these specific areas.

Interactive C.V.

The interactive resume portion of my portfolio site offers a complete overview and bullet points related to my  professional experiences that you would expect to find on a traditional resume. As a value add, I have dedicated a separate page to each employment opportunity, that includes links back to specific deliverables completed while I was in that particular role, and to the employer’s website, too.

If you prefer to view my portfolio site in a more traditional resume format, or to learn more about the work I completed while working for a particular employer, simple navigate to the about Judy menu to peruse my interactive C.V., and select the particular position you’d like to explore.

Thanks again for visiting. I hope you find my portfolio site interesting and informative.



One-Way Street

We got stuck in the traffic on the way home from Key West on Monday. I’ve heard this happens a lot on Sundays. So it’s no surprise we would run into a jam returning home on a national holiday. Especially since there is only one lane in and out of the Florida Keys. I’m definitely …

Choosing What You Let Into Your Circle

Sunday, May 29, was a pretty hot day in Key West. So we decided to do our exploring in the morning before it got too hot. We have only been to Key West one other time. And this was the first time we got to see the Key West lighthouse. Had we known it was …

Hibiscus Mandala

I’m doing my daily “mandayla” from the Hibiscus room of the Duval Inn in Key West today. So I decided to use a hibiscus as my centerpiece and starting point. I immediately noticed that the hibiscus I was referencing online bore a strong resemblance to a vagina. I pointed this out to Brad, who is …

Why I Love Walt Disney World

We are just six days out from our next Walt Disney World vacation. Our personalized magic bands have arrived, one purple and one green. I have made a few, tentative FastPlus+ selections and thought I’d share some of my excitement in a post. We are going to the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival next …

The Dust Test

To me, dust is one of the most pervasive annoyances on the planet. I have always despised household chores. But the act of dusting has always seemed especially futile to me. It’s painfully boring, and needs to be done over and over again because the results are so short lived. Growing up Catholic, the priests …

Redefining More

The person who dies with the most toys wins. Bumper sticker wisdom like this says a lot about how we relate to our things. It’s not just about having lots of things we like. It’s about having lots of things just to have them, and having more things than everyone else. In a consumer-driven society, …

Happy New, Decluttered Year!

Happy new year 2016! Last year, I made lots of strides in freeing my home and life from lots of clutter. It started with a simple desire to clear out a few things. I revisited Clear Your Clutter With Feng Shui by Karen Kingston, an old book on clearing clutter that had inspired me previously. …
