Craig has been involved in healthcare for more than 40 years. First, during his eight years as an active duty Navy Corpsman, he learned the fundamentals of patient care, acquired his education, and served in various capacities at the naval hospitals in Portsmouth Virginia and Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, Florida. Craig studied at the Naval School of Health Sciences in Tidewater, VA, George Washington University and Southern Illinois University. Upon leaving the Navy, he continued his education and passion for patient care while working as a Radiology Technologist and Chief MRI Technologist in Jacksonville, FL. Craig's passion for knowledge and his compassion for all people led him to serve in various capacities in medical and civic settings.
Now, for the past 11 years, Craig has served Burke, Rutherford, and McDowell counties as a highly skilled Hearing Instrument Specialist. It is his greatest pleasure to apply his extensive skills and knowledge to the assessment, consultation, treatment and care of people with hearing loss. Craig serves his specialty as the current Vice President of the North Carolina Association of Hearing Care Professionals and previously served two years as the Secretary of that organization.
Craig and his wife, Jeanne love spending time with friends at various local music venues and local vineyards where they enjoy the full experience of the excellent wines produced here in their beloved foothills of North Carolina. They live in the middle of twelve acres set between Valdese and Morganton where they enjoy entertaining friends, family, and the loving, exasperation of three springer spaniels.

“I've had hearing aids about 4 years but never received the kind of caring and service I received at MT Ear. They are sincerely concerned about making me hear the best I can. I've had these 2 weeks and already hear so much better than I did. They are excellent providers! ”
“All my concerns were addressed and taken care of. Could not be better. ”
“Polite. Prompt. Fast. Professional. Competent. ”
“I was seen promptly at my appointment time, I was never kept waiting. The technician was very knowledgeable and thorough. The appliances were explained to me very well and at the follow-up appointment, adapted to my needs. I am most satisfied with the care and attention from the tech and his staff. ”
“Adjusted hearing aids, that helped. But more than that, Craig helped me understand how changing some of my habits would improve my hearing experience. Very worthwhile hour. ”
