Judy Francis had a love for animals before she ever became involved with radio. Her interest led her to the world of animal care as a veterinary technician where she found herself intrigued by simple surgeries like spaying and neutering. Since the world of vet medicine wasn't lucrative, she found herself doing whatever necessary to pay the bills, including delivering phone books and waiting tables. In 1999 she joined Animal Radio Network™ as a secretary. Through hard work and determination she was able to learn the ins and outs of producing a radio show. Now she is the Executive Producer (some say the master-mind behind ARN) for Animal Radio® as well as the co-host, along with Hal Abrams, of the number one animal show in America, Animal Radio®.
