Judy was born in Taipei and grew up in Mississauga, Canada. She studied Recreation and Business at the University of Waterloo while competing as a varsity rugby athlete and amateur hockey player. After graduation, she moved back to Taipei where she spent the next 6 years teaching English. Her students ranged from Kindergarten children to business professionals and everyone in between. When she finally committed to a professional teaching career, she returned to Canada to study Education at the University of Toronto and worked with the Toronto Inner-city Rugby Foundation to help establish a $100,000 scholarship for students pursuing post-secondary education.
Prior to Taipei American School, Judy taught physical education at the International School of Macao for 2 years. She coached touch rugby for middle and secondary school teams and mini rugby with Macau Rugby Football Club.

Hannah joined TAS as the TAS Associate Athletics Director in April 2018. Hannah played NCAA Division 2 softball and won the 2014 national championship at West Texas A&M University where she got her bachelor’s degree, then got her master’s degree from Texas Tech after graduating from West Texas A&M. She loves to watch her alma mater compete in all sports, but dislikes it greatly whenever a Texas Tech team loses.
As you would expect from someone who works full time in the Athletics department, Hannah loves sports. Her favorites include baseball, softball, volleyball, basketball, and football. She also enjoys listening to live music.
