Board Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences
I have been in the hearing industry for 12 years. I am board certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences. I have a passion for helping people and changing their lives and have done so in many capacities. I possess the knowledge, skill and experience to educate those with hearing loss, and their loved ones to be able to participate in, and live life to the fullest despite their hearing loss.

Hearing loss as been attributed to several other health disorders including but not limited to; dementia and other cognitive disorders such as depression, diabetes, stroke and heart disease. Today, 14.6 million people in the USA live with an untreated, disabling hearing loss. It is my goal to help change these numbers to provide all around wellness to those with hearing loss.
