Nihla has been married for 48 years to James Judd. They have 5 children and 18 grandchildren.
She earned her Associates Degree from Weber State College and attended Brigham Young University (BYU), where she is now an Adult Religion teacher. Previous to teaching for BYU Adult Religion, Nihla also taught as a seminary Teacher at Dixie, Snow Canyon, and Tuacahn High Schools, and as an Institute Teacher at Dixie State College Institute of Religion.
Nihla's desire to be a positive influence and a force for good in her community has led to her current work as a tour guide for the historic Pine Valley Chapel in Southern Utah, and an LDS Family Services Support Group Missionary. She also ran as an Independent American Party Candidate for the Utah State House of Representatives in 2014, where she captured 21% of the vote running against Don Ipson (Republican), and Cheryl Hawker (Democrat). The news reported that to receive 21% of the vote was unheard of for a 3rd party candidate - they usually obtain only 2 - 3% of the vote.
Prior to being IAP Executive Assistant over Constitutional Law, Nihla was the IAP Western Regional Coordinator from 2015 - 2017.
