Judy was a "backward, shy" child who had trouble making friends, partly because her parents were often away as they pursued their scientific careers. She spent a few years living with her Aunt Colleen in Los Angeles, where she became very close to her cousin, Joan--"a relationship that continued up to the day of the Jupiter 2 launch."
Judy became better adjusted as she entered her teenage years, and attracted quite a few boys. Her mother refused to let her date until age 16, however.
She finished high school at the United States Space Corps Training Center in Houston, Texas, where, in addition to studying academic subjects, she learned about survival in space, the operation of Jupiter 2 equipment, and spacewalking.
Although above average in intelligence, Judy did not inherit her parents' superior intellect. In her own words, she "never really cared much for school," but found she was talented at acting, singing and dancing. She planned to pursue a career in one of those areas.
Her plans had to change when the Robinson family was chosen for the colonization mission. "Always emotional and slightly rebellious," Judy didn't want to join her family on the mission at first.
She changed her mind when Major Donald West was selected to be the Jupiter 2's pilot. They "hit it off immediately" because of their complimentary personalities: Both are impulsive, but Judy is compassionate and caring, while Don is, in her father's words, "a real hothead." Though she once complained to her mother that she didn't have more men to choose from, Judy and Don have become very close while lost in space.
