Meet The Team
Wendy was born and raised in a small town in New Jersey where you knew everyone. When she was 18 years old, her family moved to Kissimmee Florida. In the late 1990’s Wendy began her path to a Patient Care Coordinator and fell in love with helping people. Her husband, who is a licensed hearing instrument specialist, decided to open a Hearing Aid Center. She began to learn more about hearing aids and started falling even more in love with helping patients live their life in better hearing. After opening 2 more offices, in 2008 Wendy and her family decided that the Florida heat was not for them, so they packed up and moved to North Carolina. Waynesville provides her with the small-town feel and sense of community that she missed from her childhood. Wendy has been with the Mountain Ear Hearing Associates team for a few years now and is proud to have the opportunity to help patients live their life in better hearing each day.
