Judy Geer graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Ecology and a new favorite sport: Rowing. She went on to compete on three US Olympic Rowing Teams in ’76, ’80 and ’84. In 1983, she earned a Masters in Engineering from Dartmouth and then joined Concept 2, which had been started in 1976 by Dick Dreissigacker (now her husband) and his brother Peter. She is currently a member of the Marketing and Communications Team. In 2009, Judy and Dick purchased the Craftsbury Outdoor Center and turned it into a non-profit with a mission that combines lifelong sports, sustainability and stewardship. Judy was a member of the Morristown School Board for over 15 years, and has also been active in Early Education. She currently serves on the boards of the New England Nordic Ski Association and Vermont Natural Resources Council.
Judy and Dick live in a cabin in Albany, VT from May until the firewood runs out—usually December—and spend the rest of the year in Morrisville, VT. Their kids are skiers, rowers, and biathletes, and Judy has long since given up trying to keep up with them.
