"I don't know that it's right that athletes have the influence they do, but the fact is they have it. Those of us who understand that and walk in that realm have a tremendous opportunity and a significant responsibility to use our platform of influence to make a positive difference. We ignite hope for those who need it and make ambassadors of those who have it."

A former NCAA Division I volleyball coach, Judy Fox's global impact is evidenced by her induction to four halls of fame: East Stroudsburg Area School District Meritorious Hall of Fame, ESASD Athletic Hall of Fame (team), Houghton College Hall of Honor, National Christian College Athletic Association Hall of Fame. Judy's fingerprint extends across generations, cultures, beliefs, and nationalities. She has trained leaders of national teams, international sports federations, Olympic committees, and youth development and community influencers in more than a dozen nations to utilize the universal language of sport to empower tomorrow's leaders.

Judy's impact is notable in the USA, Nicaragua, Cuba, Liberia, the Holy Land, Jamaica, and Russia, to name a few. She has received service awards from the Nicaragua Volleyball Federation, the Bethlehem Committee of the Palestinian Volleyball Federation, the American Heritage Academy Service Award. Additionally, the United States Army recognized Judy's leadership with a Certificate of Appreciation, and that same evening named its outbound flight from Dallas-Fort Worth to Kuwait "Operation Ignite" to honor Ignite's support of the DFW Military Personnel Assistance Point.

Judy leads with an uncompromised dedication to "impact through relationship" that has uniquely positioned Ignite International as a trusted visionary partner to the Nicaragua Volleyball Federation, Nicaragua Olympic Committee, Jamaica Basketball Federation, sport and youth development agencies in the Holy Lands, and numerous values-based NGOs. Judy speaks for athletic, and leadership team empowerment engagements including the Ziglar Monday Morning Devotional for business professionals hosted by Ziglar, Inc. in Dallas, TX. Her unique ability to connect with audiences of all contexts ignites hope that is relevant, reachable, and real.

Judy is a native of East Stroudsburg, PA, and resides in Dallas, TX. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Houghton College (NY) and a Master of Sports Science from the United States Sports Academy (AL).

"In a world of compromise and decaying moral standards, it is refreshing when you come across an individual who has dedicated her life to living at a standard that is high enough for others to look up to, but close enough for them to reach."
