After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, Judy moved to Arizona and worked as an engineer in research and new product development in the Semiconductor Industry. After 22 years, she decided she wanted to change careers, so she quit her job and became a graduate student in the Math department at Arizona State University. As a graduate student, she worked as a research assistant on the MSP Grant called Project Pathways, a professional development program for Secondary math teachers. Dr. Sutor received her PhD in 2010, taught middle school mathematics at a charter school for a year, and then joined SCC as a faculty member.
