Patient Care Coordinator

I am very happy to be the new Patient Care Coordinator at our Ashland office! The highlight of my work experience has been as a caregiver, care coordinator, and advocate for my mother. While I have had a presence in the Rogue Valley since 2007, I have been mostly absent the last few years while providing home care for my mother in Canada. I am new to audiology and excited to learn what I can to help our patients experience exceptional patient care. Please stop by our bright and beautiful office and let us know how we can help with your hearing needs. Our beloved mascot is here on Tuesdays and Thursdays and would love to meet you!

Office manager, Patient Care Coordinator.

I have had the pleasure of working with hearing impaired patient’s at Imaginears for over 17 years. My position allows me the flexibility to work on hearing aids in need of repair, help patients with their billing needs and questions, schedule appointments, chat with potential new patients about how Imaginears and its staff stands out from all the others and act as the welcome center for the office.

The best part of my job is watching a new hearing aid wearer walk out of the fitting room and seeing their eyes light up as if they are hearing for the first time.
