Bio:
I am grateful to work in the field of Audiology at a time when technology is rapidly advancing and consequently there are so many hearing device options available to my patients. Beyond staying up to date on current technology, I have compassion and the ability to listen closely to each individual’s needs. Every patient has a unique story on why they are visiting a hearing care provider and it is my responsibility to diagnose, counsel, and develop an appropriate treatment plan. I believe that with a strong understanding of a patient’s lifestyle and needs I can guarantee that each patient receives the most benefit possible from amplification. I am further committed to supporting patients by ensuring that I answer all their questions and that I am always reachable and here for any support.

It is extremely rewarding to see the expression on a patient’s face when they hear sounds for the first time. Whether it is an adult who has not heard the sound of birds chirping for years or a one year old who is hearing for the first time, it is incredible to see how they scan and absorb the environment around them in a new way. I love being a part of the process and having the ability to then follow up with these patients. In my opinion, continued follow up is the most effective way to quality patient care. As a provider I can offer the most support by establishing good rapport with patients and continuing to learn about their hearing health journey and understand ways that their quality of life has improved!

Happy Patients

Our audiologist was highly competent, pleasant and caring. She addressed any concerns I had about my new hearing aids, making the necessary adjustments to improve sound quality. The office is run well. I would recommend this practice to anyone interested in hearing better.
