Judi Carle - Office Manager

Judi Carle lived in the Chicago area until 2001 when she escaped the rat race of being a restaurant company CFO (and the snow) to move to Chandler. She spent the next few years writing cookbooks with her teenage daughters and attending Holy Trinity with her family. In 2006, she was looking for a new challenge and found it in Holy Trinity’s office. In her spare time she likes to cook, garden, quilt and read...sometimes all at the same time.
