InfoJudy Feder has lived in Northern Virginia for over thirty years with her husband, Stan, and their two sons. Professor and Dean of Georgetown University’s Public Policy Institute, Judy is one of the nation’s leading experts on health policy, respected for her work as a scholar, public servant, and independent advocate for America’s families.

Judy began her three decades of public service researching ways to make health care more affordable. A widely published scholar, Judy worked at the Brookings Institution and Urban Institute before joining the faculty of Georgetown University in 1984.

Judy first served in government in 1988 as Staff Director of the congressional Pepper Commission (chaired by West Virginia’s Senator John D. Rockefeller, IV), and is widely credited with setting the stage for the health reform debate of the 1990s. In 1993, she was appointed to the Department of Health and Human Services, where she worked to expand health insurance coverage, effectively manage Medicare and Medicaid, and assure the safety of food and drugs.

Judy has served as Dean of Georgetown University’s Public Policy Institute for the last seven years, building it into one of the nation’s premier schools training the next generation of nonprofit, government, and military leaders. In addition to teaching, Judy oversees degree programs training students specializing in international development, education, health, environmental policy, and public and nonprofit management.

Judy has also pioneered programs to address the new security challenges following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Working with the Department of Defense, Judy helped create a program for soldiers returning from the battlefield for careers in military leadership. Many of her graduates have returned to Iraq and Afghanistan after serving in policy positions at the Pentagon. She also has established civilian certificate programs in Homeland Security and Bio-Defense.

Judy’s husband, Stan, is a former intelligence analyst for the CIA who spent more than 20 years working to reform the intelligence community and now occasionally teaches analysis for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Georgetown School of Foreign Service. A long-time food enthusiast, Stan has embarked on a second career as a sausage maker. His company, Simply Sausage, was recently featured in the Food section of the Washington Post. A small businessman in the food industry, Stan has also started a not-for-profit working with local farmers to promote their products.

Judy and Stan’s two sons followed their parents’ footsteps into government and public advocacy and live in Northern Virginia, the older in Arlington with his wife and the younger in Alexandria.
