Penny Barron


Penny came to us in the spring of 2014 from Austin, Texas. She has over 17 years of experience with hearing, hearing healthcare, and hearing instruments. Though not a native Texan, Penny spent most of her life in Texas and sports a Texas accent to prove it! She graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders and from the University of Texas at Austin with a Master’s Degree in Audiology.

Penny enjoys helping people to hear well so they can stay connected to their loved ones and participate in the activities they love. She enjoys hiking, reading, traveling, and is enjoying getting to know her new Bay Area home.

She then earned her Doctorate of Audiology in 2003 from the School of Audiology at Salus University.
Dr. Snyder-Miles has been working in private practice since 1986 and currently practices in both our Sonoma and Los Gatos offices. She strives to create the ultimate patient experience and is dedicated to improving her patients quality of life by delivering the most accurate hearing assessment as possible.

“They were very nice. She explained all about the hearing aid and everything. It was hard to fit me for a hearing aid because one of my canals was not big enough and she went over all of that.”
