Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist / Owner
As a second-generation professional in hearing healthcare, I have followed in the steps of my mother, who purchased her own practice in my hometown of Macon, Georgia 30 years ago. I remember spending afternoons as a child, in the back office of my mother’s practice, watching the impact that better hearing had on the lives of her patients and their families.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Georgia, which happens to be both my parents’ and brother’s alma mater as well. After managing two successful practice locations outside of Charlotte, I made the decision to come back closer to home to provide my services. Levine Hearing, in South Charlotte, is an independent practice. That means that we can work with any manufacturer, but it also gives us the ability to be selective in which products are chosen to get the best results possible for our patients. I am Nationally Board Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences, which is an elective certification that demonstrates my dedication to go above the requirements of the state of North Carolina and to provide the very best care to my patients.
I am an active advocate for seniors in numerous groups in South Charlotte, sit on the board of the Levine Senior Center, and dedicate extra time providing hearing loss and hearing aid education in many local eldercare facilities.

Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist
For over 18 years I have been excited to give the gift of hearing everyday sounds of life by educating patients on the best way to reduce the effects of noise-induced hearing loss or by helping patients understand the effects of hearing loss, the many choices of hearing instruments and levels of technology.
Many years ago I was able to take this journey with my mom. She was living with me at the time and I had noticed her withdrawing from conversations, social activities and hobbies she once enjoyed. I tested her hearing and explained her results. We discussed the level of hearing loss and technology that would best help her hear conversations and sounds life. It was an eye-opening experience for me as I was able to see her day to day improvements and help encourage her on some of the harder days. Because of this experience with my mom, I have more empathy and know that the journey of better hearing is real. I can connect with my patients in a more personal way, be more understanding in many situations and help with solutions to improve the quality of conversations.
Family is very important to me. Levine Hearing is a family-owned and operated clinic, and I love that I can bring families together by improving communication through better hearing. This connection to loved ones, friends and sounds of life improves overall health. This is a journey that I would be honored to take with you.
