Before becoming a DCS, she worked in London local authorities within statutory children's services as well as being a strategic commissioning manager working across social care, schools and the health economy to improve outcomes.

She chaired an Adoption Leadership Board on behalf of the regional ADCS, contributing to the development of the National Board’s strategy. Judith set up and established sub regional partnership fora to address the developments with partner agencies relating to MASH and to the SEND agenda. Judith was a key Director in the development of a shared adoption service and of a Regional Adoption Agency.
