Co-Owner and Clinical Audiologist, Menlo Park and Los Altos office.

I grew up in Portsmouth, Ohio. I was an undergrad at the College of Wooster in Ohio and graduate at Northwestern University near Chicago. I did my externship at the VA outside of Chicago.

I have always enjoyed volunteering throughout my life. As a teen, I volunteered a lot at a local retirement community, and I loved spending time with the residents there. While in graduate school, I was able to travel to Peru to educate others about hearing healthcare. Pacific Hearing Service was a great fit for me because of the practice’s focus on humanitarian outreach both locally and abroad.

I love that we are able to take our time with our patients to give them the best care possible. I also love that we are a team – everyone works together!

I consider myself to be an organized, sincere, and passionate person.

Outside of work, I enjoy doing anything in the sunshine! Tennis, running, biking, camping, hiking, rock climbing. I also like to bake cupcakes and waffles and knit.
