“Corinne has been an integral part of the USA Judo community for decades and her impact on the sport of judo and National Officemade her an important member of our team,” said USA Judo CEO Keith Bryant. “We will all miss everything that Corinne has brought to our organization, events staff and our sport as a whole and are appreciative of all her hard work. We wish her the best in the future.”

A nationwide search for the USA Judo membership and events departments will begin in the coming weeks.
