Dr. Judy Smith (Director for Health & Counseling Centers)

smithj
My role is: Provide psychological counseling to students; direct the Health and Counseling Centers; assist with wellness and health topics and initiatives.

I came to MU in: Good question – 7 years ago?

I graduated from:

  • George Mason University, M.A.
  • Michigan State University, Ph.D.
The best part of my job is… the people.

My favorite memory from when I was in college is… spending time with my friends.

If I could meet one person, it would be… Mary Oliver.

If I were a superhero I’d be… jumping buildings with a single bound, traveling wherever I chose, and making paperwork disappear with a blink of my eyes.

Something you may not know about me is… I have a menagerie of 3 dogs and 2 cats.

The book I am reading right now is… the most recent James Patterson novel.

I have a special talent that nobody knows I have, it is… does making homemade yoghurt count?

Mercyhurst in three words: People. Mission. Knowledge.
