I grew up in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York. I moved to Minnesota in 1998 after finishing my graduate work at the University of Arizona, Tucson. I find Minnesota to be much like New York, other than the bitter wind that makes winters so much colder here.
Since moving to Minnesota, I have worked in a variety of professional settings, including ENT offices, manufacturing companies, and private practice. In each placement, it has always been the interactions with patients and the opportunities to improve their quality of life that has inspired me in audiology.
In my professional career, I have completed my doctoral degree through the University of Florida, Gainesville. I joined Amdahl Hearing in June 2012 and primarily work with insurance patients and veterans. When the opportunities arise, I enjoy going for a run, scrapbooking, gatherings with friends, and family time.
