"Hearing Care is advancing faster than the speed of sound. Breakthroughs like digital and wireless technology are assuring people a richer, more pure sound quality than ever before. That’s why I never stop training. I know how much depends on your hearing. I want you to know your hearing can depend on me."

Education: Graduate degree from University of Colorado; Undergraduate from Concordia College; Board Certified - Hearing Instrument Sciences; Audioprosthologist

A family tradition of hearing care: Second Generation Hearing Care Practice since 1968

Extensive postgraduate education: Annual continuing education and training in hearing care practices and revolutionary digital and wireless hearing instrument technology

"People with hearing difficulties retreat into isolation, enduring sounds of silence instead of enjoying their grandchildren’s giggles. That’s why I regularly speak at seminars and senior communities. Some patients won’t reach out for the help they need. I make sure it reaches out to them."

Lecturer: Seminars and area senior communities

A Career Developed From the Love of Sound

“One of the biggest influences in my life has been music. I played trumpet and piano at a young age, and continued that interest with classes in music theory and acoustics. When I was introduced to the field of audiology in college, I found it interesting that sound could be so specifically manipulated in order to help people hear better. It was wonderful to be able to combine my love of music and sound with my desire to help others, especially in an area so special to me.”

Education:  Bachelor’s Degree in Speech & Hearing Science, and Linguistics, University of Iowa; Doctorate in Audiology, Salus University

Contributions: Developed an auditory rehabilitation program for patients to more effectively use their hearing devices; Participated in research to measure attention, using auditory evoked potentials. Also measured hearing pathways beyond the brainstem using the same technique, finding norms for children’s populations

Personal Interests: Music, rock climbing, mountain biking and kayaking

Working Together Towards Success

“As a hearing care professional, I feel my most important role is as an advocate, working together with my patients toward the common goal of better hearing. Every hearing impaired person experiences sound differently, so the best option for one person may not be suitable for another. By working together, we can find the most appropriate hearing solution for each individual's needs, and learn how the hearing instruments can help the patient hear to the best of their ability in various environments.”

The Rewards Are Limitless

“While I was a student, we had a young woman in the clinic who was roughly our age. She had a severe hearing loss since she was a child, and had never found much success with hearing instruments. We tested her hearing and programmed a pair of brand new digital devices for her. Our instructor had her face the wall, then walked out into the hallway and began whispering to her. The young woman began to tear up, and said, “I can hear every word you’re saying!” This experience is when I knew this was the right field for me, and has stuck with me ever since.”

A Love Story 

When I discovered the field of Audiology in college I was immediately drawn to it after learning about how hearing aids work to improve a person's hearing. The more I learned about various hearing losses, the more motivated I was to go into Audiology, and a commitment to my patients to help them achieve a better quality of life. 

Education: Bachelor's of Science and Magna Cum Laude in Speech Pathology Unicerity of Nevada, Reno; Doctorate in Audiology, Arizona State University.

Contributions: Humanitarian trips to Africa and Mexico, Providing audiological services to those in need. 

Personal Interest: Comic book and Sci-Fi nerd, lover of cooking Mexican food, and woodworking creating pieces for friends and family. 

Quality Care to Patients

I enjoy interacting with patients and their family to improve their quality of life. I find it rewarding when patients come back to have their follow-up appointments and tell me about how they were able to hear their spouse better, or how they were able to once again participate in a conversation with a group of friends. It's always nice to hear that I've made a difference in someone's life and help them hear loved one's again. 

Committed to Every Individual Patient

I believe patients are consumers in a large and growing healthcare market, and they deserve high-quality individualized customer care. I make sure I am up to date and trained to today's technically advanced hearing aids so that I can always provide the best services to each patient.

“I had broken my hearing aid and bought another one online and needed it to be reprogram to my other hearing aid and I found this office the doctor's name is Elizabeth she is a wonderful person my ears had a lot of wax and she could not run a hearing test. I went back a week later I had cleaned out one ear she said there was a ball in front of my eardrum and she reminded me that many times people use cotton swabs to clean their ears and it's best not to well lo and behold the solution removed a huge ball from a cotton swab which surprised me I thanked her very much for telling me that however my other ear was not cleaned out enough so I had to reschedule for another week this lady is lovely she knows what she's doing she knows what she's talking about I will be a long time patient there and her receptionist I believe her name was Amanda forgive me if I'm wrong they are the most sweetest people you could ever meet and I'm grateful that I found them both I will be going back to get my hearing test done and my hearing aid programmed and I'm sure everything will be worked out just fine because I know these people know what they're doing and they are a very good asset to the city of Mesa”

“Today was my appointment to get my hearing devices cleaned and my annual hearing test. My audiologist is the best (Elizabeth). She asks the right questions, makes me feel at home and improves on what I am able to hear. Her next scheduled appointment came early, but made sure she had answered all my questions and made doubly sure I didn't needed anything more. Amanda the receptionist was very polite , professional and very helpful. I love this place.”

“I had my hearing aids cleaned this morning. I was going to ask some question about my hearing aids but were handed them in a pan and the phone rang and the person working never looked up or asked if I had any other questions. ”
