Dr. Kimberly Bonney is the owner of Audiology Associates in Grass Valley as well as Gold Country Hearing Center. She is a Doctor of Audiology who specializes in audiometric and balance testing as well as digital hearing aid assessments.
She earned her Master's Degree in Audiology from Sacramento State University and her Doctorate Degree in Audiology from Salus University. She has deep compassion for people with hearing loss and remains current with the latest technological advances in hearing health. Kimberly strives to offer the highest standard of service to ensure the best solution for your hearing needs. Her number one priority in enhancing the quality of life for her patients and their families.
Dr. Kortney Mathiesen, Au.D., is devoted to helping people reconnect with their friends and family through better hearing. She knows that untreated hearing loss contributes to social isolation, and she is grateful for the ability to give others a chance to enjoy the things they’ve been missing. Her first introduction to audiology and the serious, but often overlooked implications of untreated hearing loss was on a study abroad trip to Belize. There, she led a government-based language camp while performing community-based rehab and hearing screenings. She fell in love with learning about the complexities of the ear and dedicated her career to helping those with hearing loss lead richer, more connected lives.
When she’s not working, Dr. Mathiesen loves spending time with her friends and family, and her Australian shepherd, Mayzie. She loves to ski and enjoys the many wonderful outdoor activities that Nevada County has to offer. An avid traveler, she’s explored Thailand and Europe, including London, Amsterdam, Prague, Vienna, Greece, and Italy, and is excited to travel to more places, with Spain and Portugal at the top of her list.
Dr. Mathiesen obtained her Doctor of Audiology degree from Pacific University in Hillsboro, Oregon. She never gets tired of the thrill of witnessing the instant gratification of helping people improve their hearing in as little as one appointment, and as a Nevada County native, she finds it rewarding to now be able to do this while serving the community she grew up in.

“Appreciate Audiology Associates Hearing Center! Sol is a caring and dedicated person and helps many people with their hearing challenges. Lisa and the staff are also very caring and dedicated to the patient and Audiology Associates!”
“Sol and her staff are exceptional when dealing with clients. They are attentive to my need’s and always available when needed. Sol explained my hearing issues and she will make sure your hearing is the best it can be.”
“Sol Barros and her staff provide excellent care for those of us with hearing loss. I am on my second set of hearing aids and find them awesome, compared to my 4 year old previous hearing aids. Sometimes we have to wait for Sol to get to us, but that is because she is so thorough with her patient care, meeting our needs and answering our questions. Audiology Associates is also part of the VA Cummunity Care system, and takes care of my husband's hearing needs here in Grass Valley, so we don't have to travel to Auburn or further for that care. That, too, is awesome!”
“This is my second audiologist, and my second set of hearing aids. Sol Barros taught me things about my hearing aids that I never knew. She is a pleasure to work with, and a pleasure to do business with.”
“I had battery operated hearing aides. The batteries ran out frequently so I didn’t use the hearing aides as much as I should have. However I still used Audiology Associates to care for my hearing aides. My discussions with Sol Barros about upgrading were my hearing aides were interesting and useful. I decided to get rechargeable hearing aides and am thrilled that I did! What a great difference it made. Sol made the whole experience very pleasant.”
