I’m an audiologist working with patients to provide diagnostic and treatment services. My work on the outpatient team includes diagnostic infant hearing assessment (auditory brainstem response) and behavioral hearing evaluations for children of all ages. Treatment includes hearing aid evaluation, fitting and assessment of benefit.
As part of the inpatient team, my work is primarily diagnostic. I provide newborn hearing assessments for infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and hearing assessments at the bedside and in coordination with other sedated procedures for patients of all ages. I also provide hearing device services for patients who use conventional hearing aids during their inpatient stay.
My goal is to connect with patients and their families so they feel comfortable sharing their needs and concerns. I want to provide the best care and communication possible to help families in their life journeys. Coming to the hospital shouldn’t always have to be scary! Our team’s goal is to make the experience for each child comfortable and even fun when possible. I consider it a privilege to serve our patients and families.
