Judith Stark,
Global Idexx Volunteer Effort


Hi! I am Judith Stark, and I love to be active! I grew up in Connecticut, and after years of visiting on long weekends for camping and hiking, I relocated to Kennebunk Maine.

I have always supplemented my active lifestyle with dance and fitness. My desire to help motivate and inspire people to enjoy movement has led me to teach group fitness as a certified Fitness Instructor and Licensed ZUMBA Instructor. I graduated from Quinnipiac University with a degree in Medical Technology- Laboratory Medicine. After working at a large teaching hospital, I began to focus on the role of Quality.

I served as Quality Manager for Hemacare, a company that manufactured blood products. In 2007, I accepted a Quality Assurance position at IDEXX Laboratories, which led me to the veterinary diagnostic field. It continues to be a very stimulating and intellectually satisfying business environment. As IDEXX has expanded, new opportunities arose. I am one of the IDEXX Wellness Champions and all together we help support the Employee Wellness Program. I help spread the word about healthy eating and regular exercise. The Global IDEXX Volunteer Efforts support volunteerism in the community.

This has created an amazing effect on me that extends out to family and friends. It is very gratifying to help people and know I may have made their day brighter and perhaps even made them smile. I love this facet of my life, as it feels really good to be able to give time and energy to a worthy cause. Please email me or call 207-251-8400.
