"I always knew that I wanted to be in a healthcare profession but my passion for audiology started when I was in high school working at a camp for children and young adults with disabilities. I had many campers that had hearing loss and we helped them take care of their hearing aids while they were at camp. I saw what a difference hearing aids could make in daily communication and how grateful their families were to their audiologists and medical providers. I love working hand-in-hand with families to help their loved one realize their full potential and improve their quality of life through better hearing and speech understanding.”
