Hey there,

Wow! October was a busy month!

I had the pleasure of heading to Florida to attend the AudBoss 2019 conference.

Being in a room with 150 other like-minded audiologists, who want the best for their patients and want their clinic to be thriving so that they can provide the best care possible, was so inspiring.

Meeting, connecting, and learning from colleagues who share my love of audiology and passion for better hearing and better listening and understanding, is what really gets me excited!

It sure filled my audiology cup! It really reminded me of why I love my career! It fueled my passion and desire to continue to give my patients more and better-quality service (more on that coming soon!).

I also had a lot of fun working with the Lafayette Consolidated Government and the Lafayette Fire Department.  I learned and shared statistics about fire safety.  This was a new way to serve the deaf and hard of hearing in our community.

It even resulted in an appearance on News15!

Through sharing my expertise on high-frequency hearing loss and how that can potentially cause issues with safety, especially in the event of a fire, I was able to work with Lafayette Consolidated Government and the Lafayette Fire Department to promote the grant that they received from FEMA to provide smoke detectors for the deaf and hard of hearing in our community.

This is not just some regular old smoke detector, though. This has a bed shaker, so if smoke is detected, it will use vibrations to shake the bed to wake you up.  If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may not hear it. It also has a very loud signal that’s lower-pitched that also flashes so you can have that visual cue also.

As always, caring for great people in our community makes me happy and fills my heart!

That’s why I’ve also launched something special for the month of November.


*Hear For The Holidays*

Nominate Somebody Special to Win a Free Pair of Hearing Aids


With the latest statistics suggesting that 1 in every 8 people have some form of hearing loss; it breaks my heart that thousands of people from within our community are going to be spending Christmas and the holiday season feeling isolated, struggling to engage in conversations, and maybe missing a bunch of special moments.

During the month of November, I’m holding a competition to win a free pair of hearing aids.

All you have to do is nominate yourself, a loved one, or somebody that you believe deserves to win.

This closes at the end of the month and I’ll be announcing the winner at the beginning of December.
