“I love being an audiologist because each and every patient in encounter is different. I truly enjoy interacting and getting to to know my patients. My passion is helping people understand their hearing loss and hear better with the use of hearing aids. It is amazing to see patients be able to reconnect with their families and friends because of hearing aids!”
