Hearing Instrument Specialist

I became involved in better hearing through a friend a little over 15 years ago. I followed my new direction with becoming a certified fitter and dispenser of hearing instruments in 2003. The amazing joy that comes from creating a new connection with better hearing care generates my passion for life worth hearing. I offer concierge-level of better hearing care, which focuses on precise custom hearing solutions to meet every individual hearing needs. Patient satisfaction comes through, “Verified Best Speech Clarity”, of their custom hearing solution. I am experienced in fitting hearing aids of advanced hearing acuity operating systems in multiple styles: invisible hearing solution, receiver-in-canal, behind-the-ear, and Cros, Bi-Cros. I can also help you protect your current hearing with custom sound protection and with Soundgear for hunters. My passion is to help patients hear better so they can live better every day and remain connected to jobs, family, and friends.

I grew up in the Texas Hill Country and love calling it home after years of moving across the United States with my husband in the military. I give my service to local non-profits for the hearing impaired and on mission trips to Mexico. My husband of 40 years, Ed, and I love to enjoy life by babysitting the grandchildren, traveling, gardening, renovating our home, going on walks and going to dinner with family and friends.

Psalm 100:5
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.

WOW! What a life changing experience! These hearing aids have changed my life! Within the first few seconds I could hear consonants I haven’t heard for years. I realized how loud I was talking. When I went outside I was actually able to hear the birds and the river flowing!...

You couldn’t ask for better service, explanations, help when you need it no matter how silly the question seems. Jan and Shannon make you feel comfortable and at ease.. I am very happy with the results and all the support for my hearing aids and recommend this office to everyone.

My husband and I are visiting Kerrville this week and I forgot to bring my desiccant for storing my hearing aids overnight. Not using the desiccant every night results in problems with my aids - hearing quality as well as comfort due to not drying out completely overnight. We stopped...
