"I've experienced firsthand what someone has to go through when they have communication difficulties. Not being able to have a conversation with another person, avoiding situations because of feeling left out, are things that I want to help my patients with using my training and experience. Even though I'm the third generation in my family to work in Hearing Healthcare, I only decided to make this my career after discovering my own passion for it. I want to work with both proven and new methods and technology to help my patients with all of their hearing needs."
