My desire to help people with hearing difficulty began as an adult, when I watched my grandmother’s hearing loss force her to withdraw from the social situations she once loved. I saw the help she got from hearing aids and this led me to change careers from electronics to audiology, with the goal of helping people find ways to manage their hearing problems.
Rehabilitative audiology is a process that involves a partnership between client and audiologist. The client brings a sincere desire for an improved quality of life through better hearing. The audiologist brings knowledge of the rehabilitative process and the ways hearing technology can be used to bring about client satisfaction.
The ideal outcome of this collaboration is when a client says, “Don’t change a thing!” That’s my goal, and I welcome the opportunity to help you find the best hearing solution.
I graduated from San Diego State University in 1998 with a Masters in Communicative Disorders. I began my career with a San Diego physician and have since served as a clinical audiologist with a hearing and speech center, a Virginia Peninsula physician, and the hospital at Langley AFB. I am a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology. Please see the services page to discover the range of services available.
