Why Audiology: After teaching preschool for 10 years, I decided to follow my passion for helping others and my interest in psychology, so I obtained my 2nd degree and worked in the social worker field before making my way to Hearing Associates. I enjoy working with people of all ages, and seeing the end result as their lives are forever changed with the use of hearing aids.
