Working with an Audiologist that follows best practices (just like Dr. Cliff does in his clinics) is the key to a life-transforming hearing care experience. Treating hearing loss properly is complex, and requires a provider willing to invest the time and resources in your optimal hearing results.
Only about 20% of hearing providers follow best practices in audiology...choosing a Dr. Cliff Approved Provider ensures that you will receive hearing care that includes Best Practices -- leading to your best hearing in the situations and with the people that matter the most.

Why do you feel Best Practices are critical for optimal Hearing Aid performance?
"Best practice guidelines are critical to ensure that hearing aids are fit appropriately. So often, individuals spend a lot of money to get a good pair of hearing aids, yet they are unsatisfied and the aids end up in a drawer somewhere. With a knowledgeable audiologist, the frustrations that occur when getting a new pair of aids can be minimized dramatically. People getting new aids need the care that is going to help them make the process as seamless as possible. So often people don’t know what they are missing hearing wise. With best practice guidelines we can look at the whole picture to ensure that the aids are actually fit the way that they should be for the individual’s hearing loss and lifestyle."
Why did you feel compelled to join the Dr. Cliff Approved Provider Network?
"Many patients are drawn to Dr. Cliff because his informational videos provide people with knowledge to make informed decisions and advocate for the best hearing care possible. The values that he stands for in making sure patients receive the best care possible are what I want to exemplify as well."
What do you like best about Audiology?
"I enjoy the knowledge that diagnosing and treating a hearing loss will have profound impacts on an individual’s life and well-being. It is my job to teach others about the negative effects of an untreated hearing loss not only in communication with others but also with overall brain health. It is heartbreaking to hear the stories from others that their loved ones did not wear hearing aids and ended up isolating themselves and/ or developing dementia. I know that spreading the knowledge and ensuring that individuals will have optimal hearing aid performance will reduce the frustrations that come with having a hearing loss and promote better brain health."
What was your journey to becoming an Audiologist?
"Growing up, I was diagnosed with a hearing loss when I was 12 years old. At the time, there were not many options to treat my specific type of hearing loss. As I entered college I knew I was interested in the medical field. I stumbled upon the Speech and Hearing major and decided to give that a try, thinking I would focus on the “Speech” part. After completing most of my classes and applying to graduate school for speech pathology, I had an audiology class which I found very interesting. I switched my application at the last minute and found that this profession was a great fit for me. While in graduate school, I tried hearing aids for the first time. The experience was very overwhelming and I ended up giving them back. It took me another year before I tried hearing aids again. With a little more knowledge under my belt I realized that it would take a lot of patience and persistence to let my brain get used to hearing aids. I’m grateful for my hearing loss because I can understand some of the difficulties that my patients have. Now, I have been wearing aids for about 7 years, I wouldn’t leave home without them."
