Judy ZumBerge
As a Native Dallas Girl, I grew up in east Dallas, lived in Lake Highlands for over 30 years and moved to Plano in 1995.  I have 3 wonderful sons, two living here in the Dallas area and one living in Los Angeles.  Most of my extended family lives in the DFW area.  I have been a single Mom for many years and have one son that has special needs.  I volunteer with Special Olympics and other organizations that help others.  I am looking forward to weddings and Grandchildren someday.

In the olden days I worked in reservations for Braniff Airlines from 1972 to 1982.  That time in my life was a beginning of my love for travel and snow skiing.  My husband and I organized ski trips for adults and teens from our church for many years.  I have been skiing for over 35 years and still love it to this day.  My employment in the travel industry gave us a tremendous opportunity to travel the world.  I continue to enjoy new adventures as much as possible. 

I enjoy entertaining and have several large parties a year at my home.  I have always enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends.  I am presently single and have enjoyed meeting new friends in the Dallas Ski Club.   I look forward to many good times together!

He earned a Master of Architecture degree from The University of Texas at Arlington and worked on many high profile projects for several Dallas-based firms that specialized in residential and commercial buildings and hospitality interiors.  He is a licensed Architect, a LEED Accredited Professional and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Record Boards.  He now runs his own architecture firm  Fifth Dimension Design which embraces modern and contemporary architecture.
