I really love rehabilitative audiology (fitting hearing aids, assessing needs for hearing aids and other devices and counselling patients) because I get to know and develop a strong relationship over time with my patients. That is really what I love, when our Patients almost become part of our family. That and the smile on someone’s face when they can hear clearly.
My family has grown and I have been blessed with three beautiful granddaughters, ages 6 to 13 years who I adore. I live with my husband Ron, and my Labrador Retrievers!
