Maria has a heart-felt passion to help people understand that their hearing has a profound effect on personal relationships. She inspires them to take initiative to repair and maintain relationships of all kinds. Maria is driven to help people who have been made aware of their troubles by family or friends, and helps them live life to their full potential. In her early years, she witnessed the effects of hearing difficulties in her own family. Observing this lack of connection in her mother and grandfather impacted her greatly. This ignited her dedication to improving relationships through better communication.
Maria is a generous contributor to the Starkey Hearing Foundation. This foundation provides hearing help to those around the world who don’t have a way to experience better hearing. She has also opened her company doors to the Starkey HearNow Program. A program available locally to those that qualify and need financial assistance to get the help they need.
“I find joy in reconnecting communication between husband and wife, parent and child, or between lifelong friends. Hearing is our connection to people.”
Maria specializes in multi-style hearing aid fitting and advanced programming. She is proficient in Peritympanic hearing aid fittings (Invisible in Canal) and less typical fittings on surgical or deformed ear canals. Also, assists with habituation training for new hearing aid users.
When is comes to the ever changing world of digital technology, Maria is continually researching and learning how to maximize these benefits for her patients. One of her main areas of focus is to educate her patients on auditory stimulation and it’s correlation to brain health. Since we hear with our ears, but understand with our brain, it’s vital to treat every individual with care and confidence. Better technology amounts to better preservation of speech processing. Let Maria show you how much better life can be.
