Judy worked clinically in the Intensive Care Unit for a number of years and then coordinated the Critical Care Course in 1985. When the Department of Clinical Nursing was established at the University of Adelaide in 1995 she was seconded to helped write the curriculum for and coordinate the Graduate Diploma in Intensive Care Nursing, a role she continued until 2001. Judy was awarded a Diploma of Nursing from SACAE & FUSA in 1990, a Bachelor of Nursing from FUSA in 1992 and a Master of Nursing (research) at FUSA in 1998. In 2002 she was the first Australian nurse to graduate with a Doctor of Nursing.

She was responsible for writing the curriculum of the Bachelor of Nursing program first offered at the University of Adelaide in 2005. Judy has successfully supervised seven doctoral, 24 Masters and five Honours students to successful completion and currently teaches research methods in the Masters and Bachelor Nursing program. She is Acting Head of the Adelaide Nursing School and Lead of Learning & Teaching. Her research interests involve nursing practice in acute care.
