Rachel Goress,

Hearing Instrument Specialist

Rachel Goress is a graduate of the HearingLife Apprenticeship Program. Prior to beginning her career in hearing care, she earned a bachelor's degree in Special Education: LBS1 from Illinois State University. Throughout her time teaching, Rachel worked with students who were hearing impaired and used different assistive listening devices. This experience, combined with having many close family members facing the challenges of dealing with hearing loss, inspired her to begin a new career helping people hear life better as a Hearing Instrument Specialist.

Rachel’s passion is educating people about hearing healthcare and helping them take the leap to begin their journey to better hearing health. She understands that untreated hearing loss not only affects the person experiencing it, but also those they are trying to communicate with, and therefore treats each customer based on their specific, individual needs.

Outside the office, Rachel enjoys spending time with friends and family, listening to live music and going on walks. Most often, though, you can find her spending quality time with her significant other and their rescue pup, Dolly!
