Judy Winslow has been the Director of Tourism for Smithfield & Isle of Wight County since January, 2006 following over 25 years in the marketing field. Her experience includes extensive time in the hospitality industry with both Convention and Visitor Bureau management and in hotel sales as well as top level marketing positions in long term care and television production.
Judy is the recent past President of the Coastal Virginia Tourism Alliance (representing all of the DMO’s in Coastal Virginia and the Eastern Shore) and the past President for the Virginia Association of Destination Marketing Organizations, a membership-based association of independent destination management bodies and supporting businesses who share political and community support with the primary mission of promoting their areas as meeting and tourism destinations.
Judy serves on numerous other boards including Smithfield 2020, Historic Smithfield, and Historic Saint Luke’s Church.
Judy enjoys spending weekends when not doing events at her retirement home just outside of Charlottesville, where her daughter and her son-in-law are opening a Farm Brewery and Winery called Southern Revere Cellars, on their 78-acre property this fall. In her spare time Judy enjoys Community Theater (acting, directing and board work), wine tasting with friends and traveling to interesting places!
Judy loves Smithfield and Isle of Wight County and is delighted to be back (after a 1 month “sabbatical”) serving the community she loves!
