Jared has been practicing audiology since 2002. He received his Master’s of Audiology degree from Utah State University in Logan. He is interested in the effects of sounds we hear in our everyday lives and how to help people hear those sounds more clearly, especially in backgound noise. “I chose the field of audiology primarily to have the opportunity to improve the quality of life for patients with hearing impairment. It is extremely rewarding when, through the use of today’s hearing aid technology, you can give a patient back part of their life that has been missing.” Jared was raised in the Phoenix community of Peoria.
Kelly received her Doctor of Audiology degree from State University of New York at Buffalo in 2012 and her Bachelor of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. She has a special interest in the ever-evolving advances in hearing technology as well as a patient’s intricate vestibular and balance system. Kelly practiced and developed her skills through clinical experience with Diversified Hearing Sciences and Audiology Service Associates in Buffalo, New York, and at Oro Valley Audiology in Oro Valley, Arizona. She also worked at Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center, one of the largest non-profit speech and hearing clinics in the country, working intensely with both adult and pediatric cochlear implant patients. Her desire to become an audiologist and to help those with speech and hearing difficulties came from her own lifelong challenge. As a child she suddenly stopped talking at about two years old. Through that experience and treatment, Kelly developed a keen sense of how to help others. Kelly was born and raised in “The Old Pueblo” now known as Tucson, Arizona.

She has a special interest in treating children (pediatric audiology). Rebecca has worked at a busy ear, nose and throat physician’s office in Chandler, Arizona before joining Metro Hearing and Balance. “It was a great opportunity because I was able to focus on and improve my clinical skills in cochlear implant programming, amplification and vestibular assessment,” she says. Her most memorable experience was programming a seven-year-old boy’s first set of hearing aids. “As this little boy started to walk out of the office, he stopped and turned to me and said, ‘thank you for my sound’. That melted my heart and I knew that I had found my specialty,” she says. Rebecca is a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. She grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, but was born a Georgia peach.
Stephanie has been practicing audiology since 1990. She received her Doctor of Audiology degree from the Arizona School of Health Sciences in Mesa, Arizona, in 2005, her Master’s of Science in Communication Disorders from the University of Texas at Dallas in 1990, and her bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas in 1987.

For more than 12 years, she was the Audiology Section Head supervising five offices for Cigna in Arizona. Her desire to become an audiologist was inspired by her father, who lost his hearing in one ear at the age of 12. She also watched her grandparents struggle with communication due to hearing loss. Her most gratifying experience was helping a young college student who had normal hearing in one ear but severe loss in the other, and was told that she could not be helped. Stephanie worked with her to find the right hearing aid, and helped change her life. Stephanie hails the “Lone Star State” of Texas. She was born and raised there but has lived in Arizona for 23 years.
