Judah (He/Him/His)
Patient Care Coordinator

Judah hails from Toronto and spent some formative younger years in Boston. As a Paramedic in the Province of Ontario he’s accustomed to working in a fast past, every changing environment, that requires quick thinking and evolving people skills. 

In Toronto he was the co-facilitator of a trans masc peer support group and a trans masc social group. Prior to working in the medical field, Judah put his English and Philosophy degree to good use, spending years racing snowboards and working as a snowboard Product Manager…yes that’s a real job!

As an Ontarian, Judah had the opportunity to choose where he wanted to go for his surgeries. There was limited information and guidance in Toronto regarding surgery in the US and navigating the process. So now as a member of the Crane Center team he can share his experience with both US and foreign based patients.

Whether you walk into the office or chat with him on Zoom, Judah wants patients to know, this guy gets it! He’s been there and understands the journey.

When he’s not at work you can find Judah and his husband Jeff sourcing the best corduroy to carve or the best single track to ride, followed happily by their 120lb newf Ling Ling.
