About Judy Gordon

Judy's 35+ year federal career began as a mathematician with National Marine Fisheries Service in Woods Hole, MA, where she worked on north Atlantic marine species. This was followed by a research position with NOAA in Pascagoula, MS, examining species abundance and distribution in the Gulf of Mexico. In 1990, Judy transferred to the Service taking a position with the Fairbanks Fishery Resource Office to conduct fisheries work in the near shore waters of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. In 1998, she left Alaska for the Pacific Region to take the Deputy Center Director position at the Region’s Abernathy Fish Technology Center. She spent one year, 2002 - 2003, as a fisheries supervisor in the Portland Regional Office before returning to the field as Center Director from 2003 until 2016. Staring in 2016, Judy was the Deputy Assistant Regional Director (DARD) of the Columbia Pacific NW Region’s Fish and Aquatic Conservation Program in Portland, OR, becoming ARD in July of 2021.

Born in New York City, Judy's family moved to New Jersey where she attended high school. She graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in Biology, and from the Pennsylvania State University with a Master's in Quantitative Ecology with a minor in Statistics.

Judy’s hobbies include visiting with friends, being outdoors, photography, and quilting.
