Judy Loy

CEO and Advisor

Nestlerode & Loy, Inc.

Judy Loy is the CEO and advisor for Nestlerode & Loy, Inc., a title she has held since 2008. She started working at Nestlerode & Loy, Inc. the Monday following her graduation from Penn State.

“I was lucky enough to find my niche early in my career,” Loy said. “I started as a data entry clerk but was given plenty of opportunities to grow and learn. I became the chief compliance officer and also the chief financial officer.”

Following an agreement with Dan Nestlerode in 2005, Loy took over the business. Soon after, Nestlerode retired from management and she became the CEO.

Loy loves her community and currently serves on the Leadership Centre County Board, the Centre County Hospital Authority, University Park Plaza and Mutual Benefit Group. Previously, she served on the board for Centre Volunteers and Medicine, Chamber and Business and Industry of Centre County and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Centre County.

“I think the best thing about Centre County is the small town atmosphere with the big city opportunities,” Loy said. “We are lucky to live in an area with this mix and I hope we don’t lose the small town advantages while trying to thrive.”

Outside of work, Judy and her husband, Steve, enjoy spending time with their two Labrador retrievers; their 5-year-old chocolate lab, Harley, comes to work with Loy almost every day. This year Judy and Steve will celebrate 23 years of marriage, after meeting at Penn State during their undergraduate.

In her spare time, Loy enjoys running and is currently training for her first half-marathon, which will take place in Canada this June.
