Judy Ryave McGuire, Director of Aftercare Services and Community Outreach

I am thrilled to be taking on the duties of Director of Aftercare Services and Community Outreach programming at Ralph Schugar Chapel.  My professional career began at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital as a Registered Dietitian, providing nutrition counseling to a wide variety of patients.  After taking 12 years away from work to raise 3 wonderful children, I decided to return to the workforce as a fitness professional.  The JCC of South Hills was  where I spent the next 11 years helping clients achieve their health and fitness goals.  Now, I am excited to take on a new challenge in which I will be able to continue my passion of helping others.  As the Director of Aftercare Services, I am available after the funeral of a loved one to offer support, answer questions and assist in securing any services if needed. In addition to my duties as the Director of Aftercare, I also am a member of Upper St. Clair/Bethel Park Rotary and Friendship Circle. Please feel free to contact me at Judy.McGuire@Schugar.com or by calling Ralph Schugar Chapel at 412-621-8282.
