Philosophy of Care

I value bringing a flexible approach to hearing assessment that recognizes each child’s unique strengths and needs on a given day. Each family has important questions about their child's hearing or communication that deserve thoughtful, professional responses. My goals are to address the family’s questions in a warm and open environment and to create a customized plan for their child.
