What is your favorite part about working with your patients?
I really appreciate the long-term relationships that develop with my patients. Helping patients have better hearing better connects them with their loved ones, so I also get to know spouses and children too. When my patients and their families share their successes it gives me so much joy. I also have a special place in my heart for my cochlear implant patients because I have seen what a positive life changing experience cochlear implants can be. I just love being a part of that change.
What is your favorite sound that you always want to be able to hear?
I have really fond memories of family vacations at the beach – so hearing the ocean waves crash on the shore and the seagulls calling. Out here in Colorado we’ve got so many wonderful sounds of nature like the babbling of a mountain stream along a hiking trail.
What is your favorite activity to do outside of work?
When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I like to unwind at a local craft brewery. My daughter is a dancer, so I always love watching her perform on stage and cheering her and her teammates on at competitions. During the summer our new favorite family activity is to get out on a lake, paddleboarding for them and kayaking for me.
“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.”
