"I'm blessed to be working in a field that I enjoy so much. I'm very passionate about what I do for a living. Helping people with their hearing means they can enjoy living life more. Hearing our family, sounds in nature, enjoying ourselves out in groups, these are things that are important. Too many people just put up with it. You don't have feel isolated or give up activities that you love. Better hearing is possible for most of the people that we work with, and it can make a big difference in a person's life."
