Judy L. Wallace
Judy Wallace is an administrative assistant in the Foundation’s Environment program. She provides support to program officers working on issues related to transforming development finance and advancing climate change solutions. Wallace is a Michigan native, but as a “military brat” she moved often with her family — living in five different U.S. states and Japan by her 18th birthday. After high school, Wallace enlisted in the United States Air Force and was assigned to administrative support at the 33rd Fighter Wing at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. Her travels continued for a few more years before she decided to return to Michigan. “I believe the travel and moving throughout my youth made me very comfortable with change and gave me the ability to adapt to different situations with ease,” she said. Wallace worked in administrative positions for a software reseller and automotive manufacturer before joining the Foundation in 2001. She finds working on the Environment program’s international grantmaking especially rewarding as it gives her the opportunity to interact with people and organizations doing amazing work all around the world.
