About Judy Cooper
Known for her daring spirit since childhood, Judy has gone on to experience adventures such as completing a solo parachute jump, hot air ballooning, taking a mule ride down the Grand Canyon, snorkeling through the second largest barrier reef in the world and zip lining over the jungle in Belize. Often filled with fear, she hasn’t allowed it to interfere with the thrill of the adventure!
Equally bold in her passion for child advocacy, she single-handedly took on four different national governments while living overseas, in a successful quest to enrich her family through the adoption of a twenty-month-old infant from an orphanage in Romania. Soon afterwards, she was appointed by the Governor of Oregon as a Commissioner on the State Child Care Commission and became a trained volunteer child advocate with the non-profit CASA organization.
Born in Austria, Judy has lived in five different countries and traveled to eleven, with her favorite destinations being London, the Orkney Islands and Belize. Prior to starting her own real estate investment business in America, she progressed through both the domestic and international banking industries to become a “Money Desk” Manager, and a Trust Administrator in the off shore finance center of Guernsey (off the coast of France).
She currently resides in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and considers her greatest successes in life to be the relationship with her husband, Chris, the raising of three wonderful sons, and the adoption of her “little light.”
