Anne Judkins Campbell

Anne Judkins Campbell is a founding member of the Sojourn Center board, along with Tina Smusz and Harry McCoy. She retired in 2004 from Montgomery Obstetrics and Gynecology, Inc and LewisGale Montgomery Hospital as a women’s health nurse practitioner after 25 years in the New River Valley. Campbell retired from her professional work to care for her mother, and experienced the gift of hospice in 2002 and 2005 with her parents, through the support of Carilion Clinic Hospice. Campbell is active in the Blacksburg Presbyterian Church. On what drew her to Sojourn Center, she says

“Just as with birth, we have but one opportunity to ‘get it right’ at the end of life. I want to be part of this local effort to promote living well until the end of life. I’m also dedicated to changing the culture of end-of-life care in the NRV. Thomas Merton said ‘The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.’ Our Sojourn Center project is not willing to settle for too little.”
