Katy began working for her father in 1995. She quickly learned that the work her father was doing to help people was something that she wanted to be a part of. After several years working in the customer service industry, she knew that this was an opportunity to really be part of something bigger that truly changes people’s lives. She began her training in 1996 and received her PA Fitter Registration Certificate in 1997. Katy went on to earn her National Board Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences later in her career. In 2013 Katy became a Partner at Auditory Services LLC and is the current Administrator and Specialist you will meet during your visit. Katy’s passion to help people hear better and be in the know of the most up to date technology from Audibel has allowed her to maintain generation after generation of families as patients.
