Judi Raff Lehrhaupt was born into the theatre world. Her great grandfather sang for the Russian Opera Company in Kiev and her parents were very much involved in all the arts throughout their lives. Judi graduated from NYU with a degree in Theatre Education, Directing and received her Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology from Columbia University.
She has acted, danced, directed, choreographed and taught theatre classes over many years. Combining degrees in Speech Pathology with her love of voice and speech, Judi works as a Voice Specialist in her private practice, as well as an accent specialist (put it on, take it off).
Judi is a member of VASTA. She ran a drama school for many years and worked at Bristol Riverside Theater as the assistant to the Artistic Director and Voice Coach.
When not on stage, Judi teaches communication courses at Bucks County Community College and lives with her two Border Collies and “Border Cat” in New Hampshire.
