Our President was born in Venezuela. Graduated from the School of Social Communication at the Zulia LUZ University in her native Venezuela, Judith worked, before receiving her degree, in radio and television as an intern in the city of Caracas, until she was appointed Director of Press and Public Relations in the Ministry of the Environment in Margarita Island where she remained until 1981.
In 1981 she came to the United States with a scholarship under the Venezuelan government's Gran Mariscal de Ayacucho program, which at that time sent students to different continents to pursue pre and postgraduate studies. In the city of Chicago, Illinois, she studied journalism at Roosevelt University and Columbia College. In 1984 she returned to Venezuela and resumed her journalistic career by reopening her column "Something to Comment," in the Diario Del Caribe de Isla de Margarita, Panorama de Maracaibo and El Aragueño de Maracay. All these pages were maintained with the advertising that her clients supported in her columns.
Later she created, together with her husband, David Crocker, an Illinois lawyer, her own media outlet in English, Mira! The Venezuelan Traveler. Mira! was a monthly newspaper aimed at the English-speaking tourist who at that time was beginning to arrive and discover the charms of Margarita Island as a tourist destination. Mira! captured the immediate attention of its loyal readers by its open and sincere content in the approach to reality that the tourist faced on the island. That honesty when explaining in detail what the visitor observed created trust and following among their tourist readers. At the same time, the newspaper gained reputation and recommendation from recognized publications such as The Associate Press, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Philadelphia Inquirer, among other publications.
Upon her return to the United States, Judith settled in South Florida, Broward County, and began representing sales media, in both English and Spanish, as well as on Miami FM Radio, developing a long relationship in between. Her priority was to become familiar with the local market with a view to creating her own medium. Two years later, and with knowledge of the American market, Judith decided to start her newspaper En USA in June 2002.
Immediately, En USA began to fill a void among Spanish-speaking readers due to the need to have information in Spanish about the programs, events, and activities of local government agencies, non-profit institutions, and the private sector, that would help our readers to understand and digest the economic, political, cultural and social system of this country.
