The story behind the logo

In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. Wait whaaaaa?

While we were looking at logo designs and researching ideas related to balance, we kept running into the “golden ratio.” The golden ratio is a mathematical ratio that is closely related to the Fibonacci Sequence and descibes the perfectly symmetrical relationship between two proportions.

It sounded like exactly what we needed. The golden ratio can be found throughout nature and many examples are available. Our favorite was the nautilus, an ancient and weird looking sea creature. When you slice a nautilus shell in half you can see the golden ratio at work. Plus, when you arrange it vertically, it kinda looks like a “b”… for Balance.

OUR TEAM

The team that makes it all happen

Kathleen W. Judge, MD

Medical Director

Kathleen W. Judge, MD grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana as one of five siblings. She met her husband in high school and married when she was eighteen. She had two beautiful boys, Shane and Ryan, shortly after. When the boys were getting older she decided that it was time to go back to work and do some good. She had always wanted to be a doctor but did not think it was possible at that point in her life. After trying her hand at several other careers, Dr. Judge and Mr. Judge agreed that the family would work together to achieve her singular goal of becoming a practicing physician. After years of hard work and sacrifice, Dr. Judge’s dream came true when she opened her own private practice in 2000. Her family could not be prouder.

  • Board Certified Dermatologist and Dermatologic Surgeon
  • Performed thousands of cosmetic procedures
  • Practicing dermatology for over 20 years

Monique Judge

Esthetician

Monique is an Orlando native. She chose USF for her degree, where she could go to school with her high school sweetheart Ryan, study her favorite subjects: biology and chemistry, and still be close to family. Her inquisitive nature was perfectly suited for lab work and she was hired shortly after graduation as a lab biochemist at USF’s College of Medicine. She married Ryan in 2008 and started a new adventure in Phoenix where the traffic is friendly, the plant life looks like Dr. Seuss had a say in it, and it can be a surprising 120 degrees of “dry heat”.  She has two precocious kids that keep her on her toes and love the yard and garden as much as she does. Monique joined Dr. Judge and the team in 2011. She has a passion for helping people and a thirst for knowledge. In 2016 Monique sought additional training in aesthetics and is now licensed to assist with your skin care needs.  

  • Bachelor’s in Biology from the University of South Florida
  • Skin Care at the Florida College of Natural Health

Hanna Cruz

Esthetician

Hanna was born in Trinidad and Tobago and grew up in Princes Town on the larger island of Trinidad. In 2003, Hanna moved to the United States. She worked in the hospitality industry and was licensed as an esthetician in 2006. Hanna had struggled with acne since her teenage years and decided to tackle the problem head-on. She has a very deep understanding of how acne can affect everyday life. Hanna joined Dr. Judge and the team in 2007 on the administrative side and worked on finishing her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. After completing her BS, Hanna became a teacher and helped children learn skills that would shape them for the rest of their lives. Her husband Alex joined the Navy and Hanna stayed home to take care of their two boys. In 2017, when the boys were old enough to go to school, Hanna rejoined the team. She has always been drawn to helping people feel like they are having the best experience possible, whether that’s when they are on a vacation, in their formative school years, or with their skin. Also, she has an accent and we think that’s cool.

  • Bachelor’s in Exercise Science from the University of Central Florida
  • Skin Care at Artistic School of Nails and Cosmetology, Inc.
