Wesley Housing welcomes Judith Cabelli back home to the Wesley Housing family as the new Director of Real Estate Development. Judith previously worked at Wesley from 2009-2020 in various capacities on the real estate development team. In her new role, Judith will supervise real estate development projects from initial conception through financing, construction, rent-up and stabilized occupancy. In addition, Judith will focus on development projects in the City of Alexandria, Fairfax County, Fairfax City, the City of Manassas, and Frederick County.
Judith’s most recent professional accomplishments were achieved as the former Director of the Affordable Housing Development Division at the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). There Judith established herself as a thought leader and technical expert in affordable housing development and finance issues who led cross-departmental policy and procedural changes to increase the production, preservation, and equitable distribution of affordable housing opportunities in Fairfax County.
With a fervent passion for advancing racial equity and social justice, Judith served as an HCD Equity Ambassador and on the HCD Equity Integration Team, a steering committee for the agency, during her tenure at the agency. We anticipate she will bring that same passion and knowledge of equity and inclusion best practices to Wesley as we continue to advance this work in the communities we serve.
We are very excited to have Judith back on our team and look forward to her next chapter at Wesley Housing.
