What is your favorite part about working with your patients?
My favorite part about working with patients is getting to know them and hearing their feedback about how their better hearing has improved their quality of life. I love hearing stories of weddings, baby showers, Thanksgiving dinners and all the little family moments too that were more enjoyable for my patients because of their improved hearing. I also love helping patients with wax removal too. It is very satisfying being able to provide a quick solution for this common struggle.
What is your favorite sound that you always want to be able to hear?
My favorite sounds that I always want to be able to hear would be my wind chime moving with the wind of a thunderstorm. It instantly puts me at peace and reminds me of watching summer storms with my mom on the porch. Of course, I always want to be able to hear my sons laughing together. Nothing can put a smile on my face faster than hearing those three feisty, sweet boys’ laughter.
What is your favorite activity to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and three boys. We stay busy going to dirt bike tracks, taking walks to the park, and reading books together. I love going out to eat with friends. I also play volleyball with my sister and spend time crafting including crocheting with my grandma.
“We came from another private doctor that was far away. We started seeing Dr. Brittany and have found out we were NOT given much information or guidance choosing my fathers hearing aids. Dr. Brittany has helped us choose better hearing aid that fit his lifestyle better”

“Brittany is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She took her time with my tests and explained my results very clearly. Brittany is the first audiologist that actually provided me with answers for my hearing problems. Brittany went above and beyond with my insurance to present me with several good options to fit my situation. I look forward to working with her as my audiologist of choice. I highly recommend her.”
