Hearing Instrument Specialist

Growing up in a household with family members who experienced hearing loss gave Christina a jump start on having an appreciation for good hearing. She learned at an early age to annunciate so that those in her home could easily understand her. One of her children was born prematurely and has a hearing loss as a result. Over the years and throughout other careers she has found that her passion for helping people with hearing was driving her toward a new goal - becoming a hearing instrument specialist. She looks forward to getting to know her patients and helping them with strengthening communication with family and friends. As we say here... she loves connecting generations with conversations.

Remmy loves greeting people at the door and inviting them in. Fear not, his bark is way larger than his physical stature! Remmy loves having people play fetch with him as well as sniffing their feet. He is still working on his manners. If you prefer that Remmy not visit with you during your visit to our office no problem! Just ask Gina to pop him into his office. He has plenty of toys and fun in there as well!
