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.
