Our Story

John and Judy Sears were both born in Washington DC and have been together since their days as high school sweethearts. John graduated from George Washington University with honors in 1975. Together, they took jobs as VISTA (the domestic Peace Corps) volunteers with Rhode Island Legal Services, John as an attorney and Judy as a paralegal. For the next three years, they represented poor people in cases ranging from divorces to welfare rights and everything in between.

Falling in love with the Southwest after a family rafting trip through the Grand Canyon, John and Judy moved to Prescott, Arizona in 1978. They live at the edge of the Granite Mountain Wilderness with their personal “Animal Planet” of horses, dogs, and cats.
