I grew up in Muskegon, Mich. and enjoyed the snowy winters and wonderful summers on Lake Michigan. I received both my bachelor's and master's degrees from Michigan State University. Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, I worked for 29 years in various hospitals and ear, nose and throat (ENT) practices in Ohio, New Jersey and Atlanta. My husband and I moved to the sunny South in 1990 and enjoy raising our three daughters in the Johns Creek area.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
I work with members of every age determining the nature and degree of hearing loss, balance difficulties and central auditory processing issues. I explain the potential effect the hearing loss may have on communication and provide guidance to help our members make informed decisions. My particular interest is in hearing aid technologies and assistive listening devices. I am excited to help Kaiser Permanente expand to provide amplification options for our members.

Professionally, I thrive by discovering and learning about the newest hearing aid technologies available for patients.Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my wonderful family and also my church family. We love to travel and have been able to visit many of the U.S. National Parks. We would love to visit them all! I also enjoy curling up with a good book when I have the time.
