Judy Nielsen has had a love affair with public radio since high school. Now retired after 29+ years with the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools office, she continues her community engagement thru numerous local non-profits. Judy volunteers through the education committee for both Music in the Mountains and In Concert Sierra. She serves on the board of Haute Trash Artists Collaborative and is also a Haute Trash designer, AKA Elvira Mental, Werks. She is a dedicated stitcher for the North San Juan Tapestry Project. And yes, she serves on the KVMR Program Committee, which is comprised of four broadcasters and four community-input people. She serves in the latter capacity. Judy knew about KVMR before moving to Nevada County in October of 1988, tuning in for the ten prior years that she traveled to Nevada County looking for a home. She has been very happy to keep her radio on 89.5 for the past 41 years!
