My work focuses on helping children hear better and fulfill their full potential.

Since elementary school, I have had a keen interest in broadening my understanding of hearing loss and deaf culture. In 11th grade I first became aware of pediatric audiology as a career. Since graduate school, my clinical work has focused on early identification and intervention.

As the manager for audiology and rehabilitation in Charlotte, I've had a key role in creating and cultivating our strong, multidisciplinary pediatric rehabilitation team. I was chosen to lead the newborn hearing screening program across the area. The program has been recognized by the North Carolina Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program.

I am a founding member of a Novant Health work group that focuses on congenital cytomegalovirus, a leading cause of childhood hearing loss. I participate in North Carolina's state-level work group for this condition, and I am certified by the American Board of Audiology.

My family-centered approach to treatment starts with listening. Learning about each family's personal experiences helps us work together to develop a plan that addresses each child's unique needs. I continually strive to educate families and make them aware of their options for care, so they can make the best choices for treatment. I try to be descriptive, direct and unfailingly kind.

My husband and I married in 2005, and we have three lovely, talented and active children. We love taking family bike rides. I've spent many years on the soccer field, first as a player through college and now cheering for my kids. An avid runner, I've completed five marathons and a handful of sprint triathlons. I love being outdoors.

My personal passions include raising kind and hardworking children and helping the families I see in the clinic meet their goals for their kids.
