I received my Master of Arts degree from Wayne State University in 1981, and I have been a licensed, practicing audiologist for more than 40 yrs. In that time, I have worked with thousands of patients with hearing and balance disorders.
I love the field of Audiology and the challenge of helping my patients' communication needs. I feel lucky to work with my patients and see them rediscover the world around them. I have seen the world of hearing aid technology evolve from simple analog amplifiers to sophisticated, self adjusting digital wonders that are able to analyze the sound landscape they are in and make decisions on which sounds to modify and which sounds to amplify. Bluetooth technology in the hearing aids enhance the listeners' experience to hearing music, telephone calls and conversations.
Seeing my patient's eyes "light up" when they describe hearing children's voices, the wind blowing through the trees, birds singing, and the television clearly is more than just my job, it's my reward.
