Clinic staff

Rhonda Ruby


Audiologist Rhonda Ruby earned her M.A. in Audiology from Syracuse University and her B.A. from the University of Colorado. As co-owner of the West Newton Hearing Center, Rhonda loves the flexibility that being in private practice gives her to ensure her patients receive the time so she can adjust their hearing devices to their own unique circumstances. You’ll love her enthusiasm, her warmth, and her “can-do” attitude.

Ask Rhonda what her most amazing moment was as an audiologist and she’ll tell you about the time four years ago that she fit her mom with digital hearing devices. When she asked her mom how she liked the new sound, her mom responded, “Well, now you’re enunciating!”


Melissa Mahaffey


Dr. Melissa Mahaffey earned her Au.D. from the Arizona School of Health Sciences, her M.A. from the University of Iowa and her B.A. from the University of Wisconsin.

Melissa always strives to exceed her patients’ expectations and works with each person to find the right hearing solution for them. She lives in Westwood with her husband, who is not only an audiologist himself, but also a hearing aid user as well, and their two children.


Christina Varrasso


Christina Varrasso joined our practice as a receptionist in 2009 and quickly fell in love with our patients and wanted to be a bigger part of making them smile. She was excited to make someone’s day just by changing a wax filter or retubing an ear mold and bringing a “dead” hearing aid back to life.

Her fascination with the ever-evolving hearing aid technology combined with her love of helping others drove her to further her education and become certified as an Audiology Assistant. Two years later she joined Rhonda and Debbie at the American Academy of Audiology conference and decided to take her career further. After intensive study and a one year apprenticeship, Christina became licensed as a Hearing Instrument Specialist in 2012. With her new license she will be able to participate even more in patient care.
