Judith Martin is the founder and principal of Green Home Consulting, LLC. She was born and raised in New York and has lived in Westchester County since 1993. During that time, Judy also has been the project manager supervising the day-to-day construction process for a number of luxury homes that she has built or extensively renovated in Westchester County and East Hampton, New York.
Judy has developed her green home building expertise by working on dozens of projects, as well as through AIA and industry-accredited workshops, webinars, professional affiliations, and extensive research, including various green home building educational conferences and the Northeast Solar Energy Association’s (NESEA) "Toward Zero Net Energy Homes Sustainability Series Workshop". Currently, Judy is a member of a number of green organizations including the U.S. Green Building Council, NESEA, the Nature Conservancy, Federated Conservationists of Westchester County, The Environmental Advocacy Group of Rye, and the Environmental Advocates of New York. She is also a committee member for Greening Our Children, which raises funds to benefit the Children's Environmental Health Center at Mt. Sinai Hospital.
In the early 1980s, Judy purchased an 80-year-old home in East Hampton, New York and her focus on the impact of homes on the environment began. That led to her involvement with the Nature Conservancy and the Group for the South Fork. In 2001, she donated land bordering Long Island Sound in Mamaroneck, New York to the Westchester Land Trust so that it would remain undeveloped in perpetuity.
Judy earned her Bachelor of Applied Science degree summa cum laude
from Boston University and her Master of Business Administration degree from Columbia Business School. She held increasingly responsible positions in commercial banking and investment counseling prior to attending business school. Thereafter, Judy was a senior investment banker with Goldman, Sachs & Co. for 12 years ending in 1993, serving myriad clients, including energy companies and financial institutions.
