Avid traveler Judith A. Kelly, originally of Williamsville, was recently awarded a promotion by the Niagara Lutheran Health system to the Director of Nursing at Niagara Lutheran Home and Rehabilitation Center on Hager Street in Buffalo. Judy has worked for Niagara Lutheran Health System since 1988.

She now owns her own home in Tonawanda and is a member of St. John the Baptist Roman-Catholic Church there. In her free time she “loves” to travel. She has been to places such as Hawaii, New York City, California, Florida, Texas and Mexico and has also taken a Caribbean cruise.

She also enjoys shopping and spending time with family and friends. This past summer Judy took up the sport of roller blading, which she enjoys doing along the waterfront.

Judy remembers a lunch with two colleagues, at which she ordered a crab sandwich. Instead of the expected crab salad, she received a whole crab, “legs sticking out of the sides and everything” - an embarrassing moment. After asking for the waiters assistance, Judy proceeded to pick the legs off the crab and eat half the sandwich.

Judy received her Associates degree in Nursing from Erie County Community College in 1984 and is currently attending Empire State College to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Management and Economics.
