About Me

I began to lose my hearing in high school. After wearing hearing aids for 30 years I can now dare to dream again and those dreams are coming true!! My CI has given me many "wow" moments and they just keep coming!

Mentor Information

My favorite thing about my AB Cochlear implant is
that I can now "understand" and not just "hear" so easily now!
With my AB cochlear implant, I can
*understand all passengers in the car *go to the movies again *understand my co-workers without looking at them *talk easily on the phone again *listen to music again and even understand some words to songs I don't know
I chose AB because
the technology is superior. I didn't want to get left behind without outdated technology. I LOVE the T-Mic!! It makes holding the phone up to my ear very easy!
I am a BEA Mentor because
I am extremely grateful for this gift. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to help people. I know all of the questions I had and was thankful for the people that helped me along my journey. Now it's my turn to do the same for others.
I can help cochlear implant candidates by
turning people from being anxious and nervous to being excited! I will give you a realistic picture of what to expect and what you can do to make this a successful experience.
