Trudy retired from her position as Reading Specialist in the Westlake City School District in June 2014, where she taught readers in need grades K-4. Trudy also provided staff development in reading and language for teachers to promote best teaching practices, and led parent and family literacy education and events through the district.

Trudy coordinated Westlake's federally funded Title I program, from 2001-2005, with responsibility for the budgeting and allocation of funds. She also identified students to participate in Lake Erie Nature & Science Center's "Wild Summer Reading Camp" program.

Trudy volunteers at University Hospitals and is a member of a Philanthropic Education Organization. Trudy and her husband, Pat, live in Avon Lake. They raised two daughters for whom the Center holds special memories. No Trudy and her husband share the Center's wonderful planetarium programs and wildlife exhibits with their three grandchildren.
