AAUW – MD Woman of Distinction: Judy Carbone
Throughout her entire career, Judy Carbone helped people plan their educations and professional paths, serve their communities, and live authentic lives.

She has also held administrative positions at George Mason University, The University of Maryland-College Park and Maryville University. In addition, she worked as a job placement counselor for a vocational training center in St. Louis, where she helped clients leave the social welfare system.
Ask Carbone about her most memorable work experiences, and she will tell you stories about being an advisor and surrogate parent to International Students at Garrett College from more than 20 countries, or about her work as a coaching skills trainer for the U.S. State Department in Austria and Germany with foreign service nationals working in U.S. Embassies all over Europe.
