Judy Young continues to promote excellence in the Notary Profession by her dedication to ever increasing the educational opportunities for the Louisiana Notary across the state. Having served as the founding President of the Louisiana Notary Association (LNA) and as a Director of the association for over 15 years, she has contributed much to the enrichment of office of Notary Public.
She was commissioned as a Civil Law Notary in 1989 and opened “Notary at Large”, a successful full-service Notarial Office that same year. She also operates a public tag office of “Instant Title and License” at 8211 Goodwood Blvd, Suite F, Baton Rouge, La. 2008 celebrates her 20th year of service. She received her Paralegal Certification from La. State University in 1992 and continues to remain active in that community.
In coordination with the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles, Ms. Young developed and presented first “Successful Vehicle Transfers” to over 300 notaries the first year. That program is still among the most popular seminars offered by the LNA. She has instructed the Notary Preparatory Class for a local community college for several semesters, and had developed and instructed courses for the practicing Notary. She continues to be a premier instructor for many other classes for the experienced and the novice Notary Public.
She served as a part of an advisor group to the Secretary of State on the Notary Examination. She understands the educational challenges facing students and Notaries alike today, and continues her own education through involvement in the all aspects of the Office of Notary Public. Already a 20-year Notary Public, she sat for the new Notary Public exam and obtained her State-Wide commission in June, 2008, thereby proving again she is eminently qualified to instruct the basic and advanced preparatory courses.
Ms. Young has been an advocate for the Notaries in the State, having frequently testified before Senate and House committees on issues concerning Notaries.
Today, she continues to develop educational seminars designed to update, and enhance the knowledge and proficiency of the office of the Civil Law Notary Public. Ms. Young is also a proud grandmother of three grandsons and two granddaughters who fondly call her Ami. We fondly call her our most vibrant and energetic instructor!
