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 Univerity 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.

A Tradition of Helping People Hear Clearly

“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

A Heart You Can Trust

“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

Author: Consumer education series, The Arizona Republic; Patient blog, 

Member: International Hearing Society, Arizona Hearing Health Care Providers

“I’ll never cut you off in the middle of a sentence, talk to your spouse instead of you, or make an adjustment in the programming of your instrument without explaining it to you first.

What I will do is listen to you, learn from you, and involve you in the process. It’s the only way to know which technology is really right for you.

I’m proud of the credentials on this page. They reflect my commitment to keeping abreast of the latest breakthroughs in hearing care. I never forget that a professional’s personal qualifications; thoughtfulness, compassion, and dedication make the biggest difference in your world full of sound.”
