My clinical specialty is audiology; I perform behavioral audiological evaluations and provide hearing aids. I strive for family-centered care and provide an individualistic approach to each patient that I see, as no two patients and families are the same. Everyone is on a unique hearing healthcare journey.
In graduate school, I was on an interdisciplinary leadership training grant. This training grant ignited my passion for working as a member of a multidisciplinary team. Hearing healthcare is one aspect of your child's overall well-being. Through collaboration and communication with other providers, it ensures your child is viewed holistically, with all aspects of their life and health in mind. While I specialize in the ear and hearing, I always consider the whole child.
I have a personal connection to audiology. As a child, I received care from an audiologist as I required multiple sets of pressure equalization (PE) tubes. To this day, I remember having fun while playing the "listening game.” These experiences and my passion for helping others inspired me to become a pediatric audiologist.
My research focuses on improving access to hearing healthcare for underserved populations and identifying and improving gaps in diversity, equity and inclusion within the field. I'm honored to have received the Jerry Northern Scholarship in Pediatric Audiology (2021).
I live in Cincinnati with my significant other and our chocolate lab. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and playing board games.
